Jaime Moreno Bau, New Director of Centro Sefarad-Israel
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week’s trivia question: What do the Centro Sefarad-Israel and its Director do to fight against antisemitism?
Centro Sefarad-Israel was created in 2006, through an agreement between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, and the Madrid regional and municipal governments. The purpose of the organization is to study in depth the legacy of Sephardic culture as an integral and living part of Spanish culture as a whole, to promote greater knowledge of Jewish culture and to stimulate the development of links of friendship and cooperation between the Spanish and Israeli peoples.
Throughout the years at English Corner we have done a number of programs about the Center and its many activities both in Spain and internationally. After 14 years at Centro Sefarad-Israel, its director Miguel de Lucas stepped down last spring and Jaime Moreno Bau was named as the new Director. This week we are speaking with him about Centro Sefarad-Israel’s current programs and his plans for the future of the Center.
