The Sefarad Museum:
Sefardi and Anousim Heritage Center
The planned Sefarad Museum, a multi-million dollar, 16,500 sq. ft. project of the City of Netanya, the Netanya Foundation, and Netanya Academic College, will be built adjacent to the Netanya Academic College campus. The Museum’s mission is to promote awareness of the rich Iberian Jewish heritage, before and after the Expulsion. Aside from the acquisition and conservation of artifacts, books, and archival assets, and research and education areas, the Museum will have special wings, including the Elie Schalit Columbus exhibition displays. Our resource library will include special collections, including the personal library of the late Prof. Benzion Netanyahu, to be dedicated to his achievements, and the Gloria and Leslie Mound Memorial Library.
The Sefarad Museum intends to be a world center for Sefardim and Anousim, dedicated to building Jewish identity through a profound sense of community and appreciation of the contributions of Sefardim to Jewish and world culture.
