Branching Out From Sepharad outlines the history of Jews in Spain, the 1492 Expulsion, the history of Jews in Syria, and follows them to the Americas.

Biographies and genealogies of rabbinic families include the Kassins and Labatons, as neighbors in Vallodlid, and Hedayas, as well as genealogies of their related families (Attia, Dabah, Mizrahi). The book is footnoted and can be used as a source for research.

Join us for this joint-sponsored program with the Jewish Genealogical Society - the author Sarina Roffé will discuss her work, its significance, and will be available for questions after her presentation.
