The Sefarad Museum:
Sefardi and Oriental Heritage Center will be the most significant museum of its kind, unique in that it will illuminate over 500 years of Sefardi and Oriental Jewry’s extraordinary intellectual and cultural contributions to Jewish heritage and the Jewish People.
The Sefarad Museum’s four floors will feature: A “time tunnel” network of halls vividly showcasing the brilliant centers of Hispano-Jewry in Spain, as well as the major communities of the Sefardi and Oriental Diasporas, from Persia in the east to Syria, Turkey, Europe, and Libya and Morocco in the west; the 360-seat Jewish Communities Auditorium; the Sefardi Cultural Icons floor; a sophisticated Ladino Music Center; and a state-of-the-art research library and information center that will be a beacon for researchers worldwide.
The Sefarad Museum’s world class facilities and innovative design will make it a “must see” cultural and educational attraction for youths and adults from Israel and abroad.
The national Sefarad Museum, planned for approx. 5,000 square meters, is an initiative of Netanya Academic College, the Municipality of Netanya, and has the support of Israel’s Ministry of Culture and major Jewish philanthropists from Israel and around the world.
The content in the Sefarad Museum will integrate traditional display techniques with innovative technology, including virtual reality displays and interactive touch screens and audio/video presentations in order to create a unique experience for visitors of all ages from Israel and around the world.
We invite you to take part in the great challenge of the conservation of Sefardi heritage by sharing in the construction of The Sefarad Museum for the benefit of generations to come.
