-The '''Day to Mark the Departure and Expulsion of Jews from the Arab Countries and Iran''' ([[Hebrew]]: '''יום לציון היציאה והגירוש של היהודים מארצות ערב ומאיראן''') is a Memorial Day that is marked in [[Israel]] every year starting in 2014, on November 30 with the purpose of marking the [[Jewish exodus from Arab and Muslim countries|departure and expulsion of Jews from Arab countries and Iran]]. November 30 is the date that was chosen since it is symbolically the day following November 29, a day the [[United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine]] was adopted, and when many communities of Jews in Arab countries and Iran started to feel the pressure and hostility from their Arab and Persian neighbors and as a result of that were forced to leave their countries. It is based on a law sponsored by MK [[Shimon Ohayon]] ([[Yisrael Beiteinu]]) and passed in the summer of 2014 by the [[Knesset]].+

-For many [[Mizrahi Jews in Israel]] it is considered to be a belated recognition of their collective trauma, after years of what many of them claimed to be the marking of [[Ashkenazi Jews|European Jewry]] [[Holocaust|suffering]] only from the part of Israel, or the marking of [[Palestinian people|Palestinian]] [[Nakba]] only from the part of the Arab countries.+
