Sephardim Hope International!


Sephardim Hope International was founded by Dona Gracia Serrano in June, 2003 in her quest to help the B’nei Anusim (aka Benei Anousim) to achieve recognition within Judaism.


Sephardim Hope International is a benevolent international non-profit educational organization to bring the message of the hidden Sephardic Jews (known as B’nai Anusim) from Spain to the awareness of the world.  A message of hope to those who have felt lost and are discovering their true heritage for the first time.


SHI is also a support to  the nation of Israel working in partnership with other organizations bringing aid and comfort to the people of Eretz Israel.


Through our commitment, experience, and expertise Sephardim Hope International has established a relationship with our partners that will last a lifetime!
