About Mimouna

After sundown on the last day of Passover, members of our Mizrahi & Sephardi Caucus held their first ever leftist Mimouna party. Drawing from the Moroccan and North African tradition of inviting Jewish and Muslim neighbors to celebrate Mimouna, the event included the Arab American Association of NY (AAANY) and Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM), our partners in the fight against white nationalism. The evening included an abundance of Arab sweets, mint tea, a live band, and a radical Moroccan DJ. In the tradition of Arab storytelling, Mizrahi and Sephardi community members shared meaningful stories and artwork from their family histories for the than 350 people in attendance.
