Sephardic Curriculum Created as a program within a program, the Sephardic learning track at Yeshivat Hakotel is an integral and vibrant part of the greater Yeshivat Hakotel Overseas Program with the goal of developing, strengthening and preserving Sephardic Torah learning,traditions and culture. Historically, our sages spent carefully balanced days raising children and earning a living, with part of each day in prayer, or immersed in the depths of Torah study. Our current culture seems to force a choice between the two, and very often one choice may preclude another altogether. This is not the way our sages lived. Yeshivat Hakotel has just celebrated its 30 th anniversary as a place where Torah Judaism is the linchpin of day-to-day life, thriving not only within its walls but also within the hearts of its alumni who make time in their daily routine for prayer, work and Torah.

26. Sephardim
In the first sephardi Diaspora, a large number of Jews settled in NorthAfrica and in the Ottoman Empire, especially, Turkey and Greece.
by Rebecca Weiner
The descendants of Jews who left Spain or Portugal after the 1492 expulsion are referred to as Sephardim. The word "Sephardim" comes from the Hebrew term for Spain, Sepharad , used in the Bible It is believed that Jews have lived in Spain since the era of King Solomon (c.965-930 B.C.E.). Little information can be found on these Jews until the beginning of the first century. We do know that in 305 CE, the Council of Toledo passed an edict forbidding Jews from blessing the crops of non-Jews and prohibiting Jews and non-Jews from eating together.
Visigoth Rule
In 409 CE, the Visigoths (Aryan Christians) conquered Spain and treated the Jews harshly. A canon was passed in 589 prohibiting the marriage of Jews and non-Jews. In 612, the Council of Toledo ordered the baptism of all Jews to take place with the next year. The practice of Judaism was outlawed in the Visigoth kingdom.
The Golden Age
The situation improved in 711 when Spain fell under the rule of the Muslim Moors. Both

SASSOON YEHUDA sephardi SYNAGOGUE in Melbourne. Danny Jaffé. Observant sephardi congregantsneeded a place of worship within walking distance from their homes.
The building was designed by prominent Melbourne Jewish Architect, - Ben Alexander - and officially opened in November 1994. It was a landmark in the development of the Sephardim community of Melbourne. Located in the heart of the Melbourne Jewish community, within walking distance to Kosher butchers, kosher food outlets , a mikva, Yeshivot and Jewish day schools. The Synagogue , built on two levels incorporating an elevated ladies gallery. It has a boardroom, Library, Rabbi's office, a kitchen, a multi- purpose area for Kiddushim, an upstairs study area, and an area for a large Succah at the rear. The building has a nice set back position from the road and has palm trees at its doorstep. The community and its History began in 1965. A few Sephardim came together in order to establish a Sephardi community and Synagogue in a community that is predominately Askenazi. They had a thirst for the Sephardi traditions and a yearning to pass on their cultural individuality to their children through a communal center and Synagogue. For the next twelve years they hired halls and turned them into places of worship for the High holidays. Sefarim were obtained from Baghdad, Singapore, Canada, South America and Israel.

By Avi Shlush, Secretary-General, World Sephardi Federation, Jerusalem The World Sephardi Federation was founded in 1925 at the international convention of Sephardi Jews held in Vienna, prior to the 14th Zionist Congress. The initiative behind its establishment came from the heads of the Sephardi and Oriental communities in Palestine, who, together with the heads of the Sephardi communities in the Balkan countries and central Europe, set up the world union of Sephardi Jews. Moshe Pichotto was chosen as the first president of the union, whose center was set in Jerusalem. In a unanimous resolution, it was declared that the establishment of this union was essential for the Zionist movement, in order to build the land with the cooperation of all the Jewish communities. In the words of the Rabbi Ben Zion Meir Chai Ouziel: "These Jews must be awakened from their slumber and be brought into the work of our rebirth. This is possible only by creating a strong world Sephardi union with a certain plan." In the 1920's and 1930's, the heads of the Federation devoted their energies to representing the Sephardi communities within the world Zionist Organization, the Jewish Agency, Keren Hayesod and leadership of the Yishuv. They dealt with matters of aliyah, absorption and settlement, but didn't succeed in one of their main targets Sephardim being accepted as

The World Sephardi Federation was born to fulfill a just case, answer a moral need and keep alive a magnificent tradition. We all know that the state of Israel is the culmination of thousands of years dreaming and yearning. All Jews, wherever they lived, prayed that one day people of Zion, will assemble together in their homeland in Eretz Israel. The Zionist revolution pushed the Jewish fervour to its limits. The idea of gathering the dispersed Jews in one homeland seemed to many, Jews and Gentiles alike, as an hallucination if not a delusion of grandeur. What seemed even to Theodore Herzl, the founder of Zionism, as an audacious adventure, succeeded in revolutionising the Jewish spirit which culminated in the establishment of the State of Israel. The truth has to be said. The embryonic Zionist Movement had been created by European Jews in order to bring to an end, endless persecutions and virulent anti-Semitism which had been ubiquitous since the end of the 19th century. As years went by and as the Zionist Movement accumulated popularity, Sephardi Jews joined in. They, too, prayed for Zion and yearned for the Messiah. Jewish communities throughout the Arab countries were caught in frenzy by the call to gather in Eretz Israel. Unlike their brethren in European countries, Sephardi Jews led a peaceful coexistence with their Arab neighbors. They enjoyed relative prosperity and freedom of practicizing their faith. Nevertheless, they had been living like in a corridor, waiting and praying for the day they will gather in one Jewish nation, in the promised land.

TO BE A SEFARDI B"H How many times I have asked myself "How come there are Sefardim within the ranks of the Lubavitch, Breslov, Bobov, etc. "Why, Why? To be a Sefardi, means to be proud of what our parents and grand parents taught us, to know about our Tzadikim who had and continue to uphold our belief in the Torah. To name a few, the list being so long, we should remember the Rambam, the Ramban, Rabbi Joseph Caro, Rabbi Haim Luzzato, Rabbi Haim David Azoulay, Rabbi Haim Benatar, Rabbi Amran Bendiwan, Rabbi Shalom Sharabi, Rabbi Yoseph Haim Ben Ish Hai- may their memory lives on forever and whose teachings are alive in so many Yeshivot today. To be Sephardi, is to make sure that our Tzadikim live forever in our hearts and memories, for if not us, who will ever know about our beloved rabbis from Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq and all the Mediterranean countries? We, Sefardim, have the duty, the responsibility, the great privilege to remind ourselves by ways of writing about them (among other things) that our rabbis were and are great rabbis. Have we read or heard members of other Jewish communities praise a Sephardic Rabbi with all the respect and admiration he deserves? Who, among them, has ever heard about Rabbi Hai Taieb?

Cast your mind back to the sun-drenched islands of Rhodes in the Aegean, three windmills are etched against the sea shore as you near the small fishing harbour. Let your thoughts stray a little further to where the walls of the old city enclosed the Jewish quarter, the Guderia, it was here that the aroma of herbs and spices, freshly baked pastries, deftly picked olives and preserved quince mingled. THE SEPHARDI CULINARY TRADITION By ELSIE MENASCE 'The Sephardi Culinary Tradition' encapsulates and celebrates the story of a Jewish orthodox community which existed on Rhodes until World War II. This unique book is not only about nostalgia for an age lost forever, on the contrary, Elsie Menasce's intention is to revive the spirit of the past and to recreate the atmosphere and the delectable food which was so characteristic of the community of Rhodes. The Shalom Synagogue, one of the most ancient, has been declared a word heritage site. This year will see the unveiling of the memorial stone to commemorate this momentous event The recipes of the various delicacies and dishes bring back the days of pioty, love and happiness (de alegria) which were part of life on this beautiful Aegean island.

Lori Eppstein Bulletin Staff San Francisco banker Matook Nissim had hardly talked of his pre-World War II past to his own children when Stanford's Hoover Institution asked him to give an oral history of his youth in China. While his story could be told in sundry fashion by other Shanghai refugees living here, Nissim's account differs from most because he was a third-generation Shanghai resident. His family was part of a banking clan of Jews from India. The original 19th-century clan prospered in the Far East after investing in the tea, real estate and later opium trade. They built synagogues, hotels, roads and schools, Nissim said in an interview. The region's Sephardim, mainly Baghdadi's, numbered close to 2,000 at their peak, according to Nissim. By the end of World War II, Shanghai was also home to 7,000 Russian Jews and 22,000 Jews from throughout Europe. Nissim will join about 17 family members Thursday, November 12 for the opening of the Hoover Institution exhibit. The display includes his family's papers and photos documenting the Sephardim's little known history in Shanghai. 'I didn't feel qualified to talk about the era before now', said Nissim, who left China at age 26. After recently published histories of Shanghai's Jews raised much interest locally, the modest 75-year-old said he's ready to divulge his past.

The very early and freezing Winter of 1996, which overwhelmed Holland with a vengeance in December, was the cause of taking some pictures of the frozen lakes and canals around Amsterdam.
It brought me to this spot, which is at the same time of some interest to genealogists with (Dutch) Sephardi connections.
So I decided it might be worth while to post it here.

The Beth Haim at Ouderkerk aan de Amstel.
This village, now about 4 km. South of Amsterdam is situated at the spot where the stream called Bullewijk runs into the river Amstel. Since 1614 it is the cemetery of the Portugees-Israelietische Gemeente of Amsterdam, the Sephardim who since their first settling in the low countries after the expulsion fom Spain and Portugal, finally were able to buy land nearer to Amsterdam, the largest community in the Netherlands. The Municipality of the city had not and still did not at that time, allow them to buy land within the city boundaries. Up to this time they had to bury their dead in Groet near Alkmaar. It is the burialplace of Menasseh ben Israel and the father of Baruch de Spinosa amongst many other wellknown Sephardim.
Of great and peculiar interest are the sculptured gravestones, which strictly speaking are not allowed and could be considered an anomaly in this orthodox cemetery. With their background and in view of the countries where the Dutch Sephardi had lived, the decorations of the stones with people and angels become understandable.
