Sephardism is an attitude towards life grounded in Jewish values developed through hundreds of years
The Meriane Albagli Geni Cassorla Institute for Sephardic Development in the 21st Century aims at contributing to the continuous development of the Sephardic attitude towards the world.
Puedemos hacer sefardim nuevos?
Can we create new Sephardim? Sure we can!
Sephardim have a history but they are not historical artifacts. They have a complex and rich subculture that doesn’t belong to the museums but to living life.
“The worst possible fate that could befall the Sephardim and the Jewish people would be for us to lose this breadth and openness of spirit to become isolated and segregated according to the present vogue.”
