In partnership with Congregation Etz Chayim, Palo Alto

After over two thousand years of Jewish life in the Iberian Peninsula, the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492. Most of them, known as the Sephardim (“Sepharad” is Spain in Hebrew), left with only two types of possessions: their language—Ladino—and their music.

This program explores Ladino culture: its historical account, language and music found in ballads, lyrical songs (cantikas), coplas, and liturgy.

Sunday, February 4 @ 10:30am–12pm, then Mondays, February 12 & 26 @ 7-8:30 pm (Zoom only)
