Jewish Heritage Alliance (JHA) underlying mission is to advance the legacy of Sefarad and create much needed attention regarding this scantly reported segment of Jewish and World history. To accomplish this mission, we created a diverse global coalition of people and organization that have come together in an effort to promote the saga of Sefarad on a global scale.

We employ a variety of tools and platforms in our effort to deliver the Sefarad legacy to the public square. This includes stellar, educational seminars, on and offline, that bring much needed attention to the story of Sefarad. We also collaborate with various institutions, including leading museums, creating exhibits, events, and webinars. We will be developing special interest tours that bring the history of Sefarad to life, including meetings and events that will infuse life into the Sefarad legacy and its profound consequences. We will coordinate these programs and events with our Strategic Alliance Partners and affiliates.
