The Global Nação: Two Weeks of Western Sephardi-themed Sessions
May 17 @ 12:00 pm - May 26 @ 3:00 pm EDT
Join us for a series focused on the Western Sephardi (Spanish and Portuguese) traditions in their historical and modern-day contexts. Sessions will explore the history, religious leaders, customs, liturgy, literature, arts, and material culture.
While we had to postpone an in-person conference, COVID-19 will not stop the ASF Institute of Jewish Experience from serving the community, preserving and promoting our Greater Sephardic history, traditions, and rich mosaic culture.
