On the European Day of Jewish Culture, held every year in September, the Sephardic-Israeli Centre puts on concerts honouring Jewish composers like Rosowsky, Vainberg and Shostakovich, among others. On this special day, the Jewish Community of Madrid holds an open door event.

Since 2008, Madrid has celebrated the Hanukkah Festival of Lights. The Mayor of the city of Madrid joins the members of the Jewish Community and the Sephardic-Israeli Centre in the lighting of candles, on a festive day full of traditional music, spinning tops and fritters. In 2021, it will be taking place from sunset on 28 November to dusk on 6 December
