Gina Waldman
Judith Chapman Memorial Women's Leadership Award Recipient 2015

Co-founder and President of JIMENA, Gina Bublil Waldman was nearly murdered and expelled from her native Libya because she is Jewish. In 1969, after fleeing Libya, at the age of 21, Gina immigrated to San Francisco as a refugee. She has dedicated the past 45 years to the cause of freedom and defense of human rights in the former Soviet Union, Chile and Argentina. In the 1970s and ‘80s, as the director of the Bay Area Council for Soviet Jewry, Gina was instrumental in winning freedom for thousands of Soviet Jews. After 9/11, together with Joseph Abdel Wahed, Gina co-founded JIMENA (Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa) to bear witness to the plight of the nearly one million Jews forced to flee Arab nations. Gina’s work has earned her the Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award. She has appeared as an expert witness at the United Nations, the U.S. Congress and the Canadian Parliament.
