“Seeing the Voices” is a national project for the documentation of the glorious heritage of Jews of Arab lands and Iran. The project’s goal is to speak out the untold story of Jews from Arab lands and Iran, therefore to strengthen their heritage, which is part of the foundations of the versatile Israeli culture.

The project was initiated by The Ministry for Social Equality, in cooperation with The Heritage Wing of the Ministry of Education, The Yad Ben Zvi Institute, and The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot.

The database we have established is made of filmed testimonies, as well as archival materials, which were collected thanks to the collaboration with organizations that document the history of Jewish communities in Arab lands and Iran for many years.

Since the testimonies are limited to preserving personal and collective memoirs of Jews who came from those places, we felt it was an immediate necessity to make the materials accessible right away.

In order to add your testimony, please download the app using the various app stores. After filming your testimony, you are invited to watch it, along with hundreds of others, on our website.
