Watch the powerful documentary "Ma'abarot" to unravel the history of Israeli transit camps. The impact of these camps, which housed over 300,000 new immigrants from all over the world between 1948–1952, contributed to a divide between Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews that still exists today. After the movie, Dr. Yaron Ayalon gives us an insider’s view. Watch the Trailer: bit.ly/maabarot-trailer
