Jewish Heritage Alliance (JHA) is a multifaceted platform that preserves and promotes Jewish related interests, covering past, present and future. To expand our scope and reach we are developing a Strategic Partner Alliance, partnering with a variety of organizations, institutions, and individuals, covering the private and public sectors, including religious, secular, historic, academia and governments. The Alliance is a bridge that facilitates connections among and between our member organization thus creating diverse opportunities. Together we are creating a dynamic portal that engages issues, events and concerns relevant to Jewish Heritage. Our current mission deals with the much-neglected saga of Sefarad (Jews of the Iberian Peninsula), a fascinating segment of Jewish and World history, and the profound consequences of their story.
From early arrival to the Iberian Peninsula, to the "Golden Age", a time when Jews were able to coexist peacefully with their neighbors of the Iberian Peninsula, through the Inquisition, massacres, and forced conversions, leading to the expulsion of 1492 and beyond. Our platform continues following in the footsteps of the exiled, depicting their travails, illustrating how these brave, tenacious people settled, flourished and created new worlds.
We present the saga of Sefarad in an elegant and coherent manner utilizing rich content, supported by a wide range of initiatives, events, including educational tour programs intended to bring the stories to life. This is a continuous ongoing project and invite you to come back from time to time to learn more about the story of Sefarad as we expand the scope of our presentation, adding more countries, news and events.
Note / Caveat:
Jewish Heritage Alliance acts as an informational platform for the purpose of delivering awareness regarding the story of Sefarad. As such, we cover many aspects of the story, including the saga of the Bnei Anusim (Conversos); from forced conversions, to present day phenomenon of the awakening Jewish Soul(s). We are aware of certain "religious sensitivities" pertaining to the subject of conversions as relating to the Converso communities. PLEASE NOTE that our efforts do not consider nor discuss religiosity, nor any religious issues. Jewish Heritage Alliance does not take a position regarding conversions. We neither endorse nor oppose any religious position and make it a point not to trespass on this issue.
