“Baruch Hashem, the physical headquarters of the new Sephardic movement we have since July 1, 1980, when the SEC was first established, is in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is proper that the new world headquarters for Sephardim and for all Jews should be at the very place that was the headquarters of Sephardim for centuries in the holy city of Jerusalem. Sephardic Chief Rabbis lived in these premises. The rabbinical school that sent so many rabbis to Israel and to the Diaspora was located in the very premises where our center exists.”
Dr. Jose Nessim, Founder of the SEC


“Don’t wait for something to happen, make it happen! The SEC is most concerned and interested in preserving Sephardim as Jews. If the Sephardim disappear as a culture from the Diaspora, this culture will no longer be alive and it will move from being something dynamic to simply a footnote in the pages of Jewish history, has ve shalom.”
Dr. Jose Nessim, Founder of the SEC
