abstract

The chapter discusses processes of heritage-making by Jews of Algerian and Egyptian descent that migrated to France and Israel respectively, focusing on migrant associations and the activities that surround them. By looking at how these two diasporas frame a post-migratory heritage, I explain that despite the differences, both point to the existence of a process of postcolonial rediasporisation that puts together Jewishness, the Arab past, Europe and Israel. Moreover, this process brings about the formation of new Sephardic diasporas that cut across the two shores of the Mediterranean, in which selected memories of the past are memorialised to confront challenges of the present.
