North America's growing Sephardic Jewry includes four major separate and distinct communities: Syrian, Moroccan, Judeo-Spanish and Spanish and Portuguese, each with its own unique history and vibrant body of traditions. Although Sephardic Jewry on this continent is steadily increasing in numbers and importance, its practices and customs are still virtually unknown to most American Jews of Ashkenazic (European) background, including many of those who are charged with the responsibility for the religious education of both children and adults.

Despite the increased attention given to Hispano-Jewish topics, and the "conversos" or Crypto-Jews in particular, this is the first thorough compilation of their customs and practices.

The final version of the law introduces so many hurdles to obtaining Spanish citizenship that most prospective hopefuls are likely to be deterred from even initiating the application process. Indeed, the law in its current form ensures that very few of the estimated . million Sephardic Jews in the world today will ever become Spanish citizens. Spanish authorities - presumably fearful that the list of Sephardic surnames could provoke an avalanche of citizenship applications - issued an urgent notice that the government has no intention of ever publishing an official list of Sephardic names.

Bill granting spanish citizenship to sephardic jews. The granting of citizenship requires the fulfillment of two requirements: first, the proof of Sephardic status and second, the proof of special connection to Spain. The Law makes the acquisition of Spanish citizenship possible for the Sephardic Jews that are descendents of those expelled from Spain in the 15th Century without renouncing their current citizenship and without requiring residency in Spain. Read this page carefully. How to proof the Sephardic status? Proof can be confirmed by the following possible evidentiary means, assessed as a whole (it’s not necessary to fulfill them all)

Zara Law Portuguese Citizenship Sephardic. I know that some members have mentioned using translators "authorized" by the Spanish government but I used this group before. and it was accepted by my notary.

Zara Law Portuguese Citizenship Sephardic. Public & government service. The Sephardic Jewish Brotherhood of America. I did request that the translation be done by a "sworn" translator though. At their request, I just forwarded scanned copies to the Boston consulate and according the my contact person, I can come in almost any time, though she won't be around for the holidays so it'll have to wait until January. I was expecting a long wait from the consulate but they were super quick.

North America's growing Sephardic Jewry includes four major separate and distinct communities: Syrian, Moroccan, Judeo-Spanish and Spanish and Portuguese, each with its own unique history and vibrant body of traditions. Although Sephardic Jewry on this continent is steadily increasing in numbers and importance, its practices and customs are still virtually unknown to most American Jews of Ashkenazic (European) background, including many of those who are charged with the responsibility for the religious education of both children and adults. This volume, the first of its kind, provides a comprehensive compendium of the laws and customs of these four main communities of Sephardic Jewry in such areas as holiday observances, worship services, birth, Bar Mitzvah, marriage and divorce, death and mourning, dietary laws, family relations, and many other vital areas of personal, family, and communal life. Based upon extensive research, it serves as a fascinating opportunity to experience the full variety and scope of Jewish life as it evolved in diverse historical periods and cultural regions. Educators especially will find this volume to be a pedagogical took with a wide range of applications.

This is not the kind of book you just sit down and read cover to cover. It's more of a reference guide to sephardic customs and minhagim. As such, it's an invaluable tool for anyone with any interest in the subject. It's well organized, clearly written, and exhaustively researched. If you're looking for a veritable encyclopedia of sephardic knowledge, this is the place.

This book is a tremendous asset to anyone wishing to add Sephardic practice to his/her ritual or liturgical life. Dobrinsky has researched the practice of several communities and presents them logically by classification (Family Occasions, Daily Practice, Synagoge Worship, etc.). It is easy to check all of the citations for a certain Sephardic community or for a certain area of Jewish life. Highly recommended for researchers or Sephardic Jews looking to integrate new traditions into their lives.

The last I heard countries where the Sephardim also lived such as Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy, England, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Netherlands and even Turkey were considered European countries so Sepharardic Jews are considered European also not just Ashkenazim.
