Cities of Splendour in the Shaping of Sephardi History
November 18 , 12:00 pmFree
American Sephardi Federation presents Jane Gerber, presenting her new book “Cities of Splendour in the Shaping of Sephardi History.” The book focuses on those cities that may be considered most important, from Cordoba in the tenth century to Toledo, Venice, Safed, Istanbul, Salonica, and Amsterdam at the dawn of the seventeenth century. Drawing upon a variety of both primary and secondary sources, Gerber, Professor Emerita of History and director of the Institute for Sephardic Studies at the Graduate Center of the CUNY, demonstrates that Sephardi history and culture have always been multifaceted.
