Film & Media

Jewish Heritage Alliance (JHA) partners with members of the film and media community to research and promote the subject of Sefarad and its profound consequences. The saga of Sefarad is a complex, multifaceted narrative spanning thousands of years. From the early arrival of the Jews to the Iberian Peninsula, through the trials and tribulations representing challenging times leading to pogroms, forced conversions, and the eventual expulsion of 1492 followed by the exile and the creation of new worlds. JHA seeks to collaborate with film makers and members of the media in our efforts to promote the history and consequences of Sefarad.
