Multidisciplinary essays examinig the historical and cultural history of the Sephardic experience in the Americas, from pre-expulsion Spain to the modern era, as recounted by some of the most outstanding interpreters of the field.

"A timely book [that] reminds us that the scattered remnants of the Jewish Diaspora of 1492 settled not only along the Mediterranean seaboard, or in Amsterdam and London, but made their way quite early to the New World . . . There is much to praise in this volume, [which] makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the Sephardic phenomenon.”
Bulletin of Hispanics Studies

"Includes important essays on the meaning of Sephardism in history and culture."
Latin American Research Review

"Contemporary trends have reawakened interest in this multi-faceted branch of Judaism. With its extensive leads on Sephardic history, language, liturgy, literature and music . . . this volume should assist academic, theological and personal quests to this rich domain."
