Danny Ayalon, Israel’s former ambassador to the United States and deputy minister of Foreign Affairs, will speak about religion, human rights and refugees at the University of Miami on Oct. 26.
The event is co-sponsored by Sephardi Voices, the Consulate General of Israel in Miami and UM’s College of Arts & Sciences.
Ayalon was instrumental in bringing attention to the plight of Jews displaced from Islamic lands after the establishment of Israel. Within one generation after 1948, the population of Sephardi Jews in Arab lands declined from one million to less than 50,000, Sephardi Voices reports. For information visit www.sephardivoices.com.
