New York Ladino Day 2021: Adelantre / Onward!
Hosted By: The American Sephardi Federation (ASF)
Join us for American Sephardi Federation’s 4th Annual Ladino Day!
Ladino is a bridge to many cultures. It is a variety of Spanish that has absorbed words from Hebrew, Turkish, Arabic, French, Greek, and Portuguese. The mother tongue of Jews in the Ottoman Empire for 500 years, Ladino became the home language of Sephardim worldwide.
You’ll hear from speakers about growing-up with Ladino; from students on learning the language; the premiere of a contemporary short play; and celebrated singer Daphna Mor. Since 2013, International Ladino Day programs have been held around the world to honor the Ladino language, also known as Judeo-Spanish.
