Meetings & Events
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.
JHA offers you the opportunity to become familiar with the Sefarad segment of Jewish life while meeting people from across the globe. Keep visiting our website and follow us on social media to learn more about upcoming events.
“SEFARAD: Jews in Early America; From Inquisition to Freedom” explores the role of Jews in the development of religious liberty in America from the arrival of the earliest community of Jews in 1654 through the end of the 18th century. This period witnessed arrival of Sefardic Jews and their settlement in port cities along the Eastern Seaboard of North America.
Luis de Carvajal the Younger is a symbol of the Mexican and American Southwest Jewish past. His autobiography is perhaps the most significant artifact documenting the arrival of Jews in the New World: a small, tattered 16th-century manuscript written in an almost microscopic hand by Luis de Carvajal the Younger, the man whose life and pain it chronicled.
On March 24, 2022, the Bernard Museum at New York’s Temple Emanu El Streicker Center will debut the “Crossroads of Sefarad, In the Footsteps of the Crypto-Jews” mobile exhibit created by ANU – Museum of the Jewish People in partnership with the Jewish Heritage Alliance.
