Mimouna in the D

What is Mimouna? Glad you asked! Mimouna is celebrated by Moroccan Jews the day after Passover. Families open their homes to the public and go all out with a variety of foods that symbolize things like joy, success, health and prosperity as well strength and faith during times in the Diaspora and persecution. In Israel, Mimouna has become so popular that in 2012 an estimated two million people participated in Mimouna festivities.

Detroit is jumping on the Mimouna train and bringing this Sephardic tradition to the D!

You won’t want to miss this celebration featuring:

  • Amazing food and drinks, including the traditional Mimouna staple, Mufleta (think about the best crepe you’ve ever had and multiple that by 100)
  • Live Mediterranean Music
  • Traditional North African customs and wardrobe
  • Belly dancing performance and tutorial
