Hispanic Jewish Foundation

Mission

The mission of the Hispanic Jewish Foundation is the outreach, encouragement and promotion of Jewish culture in all its aspects and expressions.

In order to fulfil its mission, the Foundation's main project is the establishment and development of the Jewish Museum of Spain, a cultural centre located in Madrid that will help the millenary history of the Jewish people become known by both Spanish society and international tourists. Therefore it will contribute, by promoting tolerance, to eradicate the blight of antisemitism.
