Jewish Heritage Alliance (JHA) is a tax-exempt under 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. We are a multifaceted platform that preserves and promotes Jewish related interests, covering past, present and future.
Our underlying mission is the promotion of the much-neglected saga of Sefarad, the 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 programs intended to bring the stories to life. This is an ongoing project and we 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.
To expand our scope and reach we developed 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
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 where non-Jewish descendants of Sefarad are discovering their heritage connection to the Jews of Spain and Portugal. PLEASE NOTE that our efforts do not consider nor endorse or challenge any religious issues. We make it a point not to trespass on this issue.
