SHIN DC —inspired by classic Sephardic appreciation of the humanities—builds intercultural bridges & understanding, while raising awareness of Sephardic Jewish heritage. With the goal of amplifying awareness of our heritage, SHIN-DC engages the world through innovative programs that connect the cultures, arts and history of the Middle East, North Africa, the Iberian Peninsula and Central & Western Asia. Through a focus on celebrating Sephardic heritage and its potential for cross-cultural bridge building, we engage in cultural diplomacy by bringing together members of the diplomatic community, members of Congress, and diverse communities, including affiliated and unaffiliated Jews and non-Jews.
We hope to see you at our next event and also look forward to connecting with you on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Folks in our community have been gathering since January 2014.
The present board & fellow of SHIN consist of young professionals in DC:
We're both inspired by and jest about the fact that even though our own family heritages span the Middle East, North Africa, Western & Central Asia, the Iberian Peninsula, Latin America & Southern Europe, our Syrian parts add up to about 1.5 Syrians (a little more if you count the baby).
SHIN also has a diverse advisory board spanning the globe.
