Short: Tom Pessah

We spoke with Tom Pessah, an activist & academic based in Tel Aviv. We talked about his work with Amram, a group working to expose the truth about Israel’s mass kidnapping of Yemenite, Mizrahi and Balkan children in the 1950s. We spoke about the racism that led to these kidnappings, and his investigation into JIMENA, the largest group representing Mizrahi Jews in the US.
