OUR HISTORY
1992, the Five Hundredth Anniversary of the Spanish expulsion and the discovery of America inspired much activity about Sephardic culture.
The idea for a general Sephardic/Eastern Jewish museum was formulated  by a group of Sephardic public figures, academics, artists, musicians, actors, and poets.
Twenty years later, the idea is at the beginning of the process of becoming a reality. One can not know where the future will lie without knowing the past.  
The museum and cultural center is a synthesis between the past and the future.
