The Institute for Sephardic Studies is devoted to research, special projects and curriculum development on the civilization of the Jews of Spain and the Middle East. It offers public lectures and teacher training workshops and encourages the study of the Sephardic experience in the doctoral programs at the Graduate Center. Its oral history collection explores the experience of Sephardic Jewish immigrants to the United States. Among its ongoing projects is the development of education modules to integrate the Sephardic experience in teaching Jewish History.
