On 24 May 2017, the Sephardi Voices Project was officially launched as part of the MDC’s Program for the Study of Jews in Arab Lands. This project represents a vital collaboration between the MDC at Tel Aviv University and Sephardi Voices, Inc., and was initiated by board members of the Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University – Ottawa, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada, and its Executive Director, Mr. Sharon Fraenkel. The SV Project will enable the collection, archiving, and cataloging of thousands of oral histories from those who were forced to leave their homes in Arab countries in the years following the establishment of the State of Israel.
The influence of the Moshe Dayan Center’s scholarship and analysis makes it an international authority on the volatile Middle East for academics, diplomats, statesmen and students around the globe.
Through its research, publications, conferences, documentary collections, and public service, the Moshe Dayan Center seeks to inform civil society and promote dialogue on the complexities of the ever-changing Middle East, both in Israel and abroad. In doing so, the Center hopes to advance peace through understanding.
