The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain presents the Senator Ángel Pulido 2023 Award to the Spanish Senate

The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain (FCJE), the institution that officially represents Spanish Jews, presented its highest award, the Senator Ángel Pulido Award, to the Spanish Senate on the evening of Thursday 22 February in recognition of the institution's commitment for more than a decade to the official State Act on the official Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust and the Prevention of Crimes against Humanity. 

The Premio Senador Ángel Pulido is the highest award given by Spanish Jews to a person or institution in recognition of their contribution to the development of Jewish communities and the Hispanic world, the defence of freedom of conscience, religious pluralism, the fight against anti-Semitism and the work in favour of rapprochement between Spain and Israel. 

The award ceremony was attended by the President of the Senate, Pedro Rollán, the First Vice-President, Javier Maroto, the Second Secretary, María del Mar Blanco, the Ambassador of Israel, Rodica Radian-Gordon, the Minister Counsellors of the German and Moroccan Embassies, the Mayoress of Torremolinos, Margarita del Cid, and the Undersecretary General for Religious Affairs, Mercedes Murillo, among other personalities. 

The FCJE established the Senator Ángel Pulido Award in 2005, the centenary year of the publication of Pulido's most important and emblematic work on the Sephardic world: "Españoles sin patria y la raza sefardí" (Spaniards without a homeland and the Sephardic race), published in Madrid in 1905.
