The mission of the Fundación HispanoJudía is the rapprochement between Hispanic and Jewish cultures; and the outreach, encouragement and promotion of Jewish culture in all its aspects and expressions.
In order to fulfill its mission, the Foundation's main project is the establishment and development of the Museo HispanoJudío, 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.
