Makom Sefarad is a cultural project dedicated to facilitating spaces of dialog and coexistence through activities and programs connected to the history and legacy of Jewish Spain.
Our activities and programs delve into the history of coexistence of the Spanish Jews alongside other peoples, and in the rich Sephardic tradition that resulted from their encounter with diversity, with the objective of identifying aspects of that tradition that might guide us as we face the challenges of life in a plural society today.
Makom Sefarad is an invitation to see opportunities for growth in encounters with difference, both as individuals and as a society.
Makom means "place" in Hebrew. Makom Sefarad, therefore, signifies a place in Sefarad (Spain) to meet with the other, who may live, think, or be different from oneself.
In Makom, we facilitate encounters between:
People of different beliefs and cultural identities. Jewish visitors and Jews living in Spain. Diverse communities of Jewish Spaniards.
