Introduction to Sephardic History in Salonica

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Join the Museum for an intimate tour through the history of Sephardic Jewry, Ladino culture, and the Jewish heartland of southeastern Europe and Anatolia—all through the tale of a single, extraordinary family from Salonica (current-day Thessaloniki, Greece). This virtual adult education course will be taught by Dr. Sarah Abrevaya Stein, the Viterbi Family Endowed Chair in Mediterranean Jewish Studies at UCLA, and will meet weekly on Wednesdays in May from 6:00 to 7:15 PM ET. Space is limited.

Dr. Stein is the author or editor of nine books. Her most recent book, Family Papers: A Sephardic Journey Through the Twentieth Century, explores the intertwined histories of the Levy family, Sephardic Jewry generally, and the dramatic ruptures that transformed southeastern Europe and the Judeo-Spanish diaspora. The book also traces the history of a collection, reflecting on how one family archive came to be built and preserved, and how it knit together a family even as the historic Sephardi heartland of southeastern Europe was unraveling.
