Review quote

"Contemporary trends have reawakened interest in this multi-faceted branch of Judaism. With its extensive leads on Sephardic history, language, liturgy, literature and music . . . this volume should assist academic, theological and personal quests to this rich domain."
--Academic Library Book Review "Includes important essays on the meaning of Sephardism in history and culture."
--Latin American Research Review "A timely book [that] reminds us that the scattered remnants of the Jewish Diaspora of 1492 settled not only along the Mediterranean seaboard, or in Amsterdam and London, but made their way quite early to the New World . . . There is much to praise in this volume, [which] makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the Sephardic phenomenon."--Bulletin of Hispanics Studies
