Who were the Sephardic Jews of the Ottoman Empire?
What lasting lessons does their spiritual life provide for future
How did the Judeo-Spanish-speaking Jews of the Ottoman Empire
manage to achieve spiritual triumph? To answer this question, we
need to have a firm understanding of their historical experience .
We need to be aware of the dark, unpleasant elements in their
environments; but we also need to see the spiritual, cultural light
in their dwellings that imbued their lives with meaning and honor.
from Chapter 1, The Inner Life of the Sephardim
In this groundbreaking work, Rabbi Marc Angel explores the
teachings, values, attitudes, and cultural patterns that
characterized Judeo-Spanish life over the generations and how the
Sephardim maintained a strong sense of pride and dignity, even when
they lived in difficult political, economic, and social conditions.
Along with presenting the historical framework and folklore of
Jewish life in the Ottoman Empire, Rabbi Angel focuses on what you
can learn from the Sephardic sages and from their folk wisdom that
can help you live a stronger, deeper spiritual life.
