Focusing on the distinctive Judaeo-Spanish cultural entity that flouri shed in the Balkans and Asia Minor between the 14th and 20th centuries, this text shows how Sephardi society and culture developed in the Levant, sharing language, religion, customs and communal life as they did nowhere else, both during prosperous times and during the declining fortunes of the 17th and 18th centuries. The impact of westernization, the end of Ottoman power, and the rise of fragmenting nation-states transformed this vital community in the modern era. And, like many other Jewish communities, the unique Judeo-Spanish culture was dispersed and destroyed by the Holocaust and the migrations of the 20th century.

Sephardim Refugee Community in the Balkans 31. Dezember 2002
Von ONG EU JIN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is truly informative if you're interested in what happened to the 15th century Jewish refugees from Spain and Portugal. The author begins by talking about the position and status of the Jews in Spain on the eve of their expulsion and the circumstances leading to their forced conversion and expulsion at the end of the 1400s. Many Jews were prosperous and held high positions in Spain (some continued to do so after converting to Christianity). The author states that many Jewish families were torn apart and separated as some chose conversion whilst other family members left so that they can remain Jewish.
These Sephardic Jews were dispersed all over : some to Southern France, Italy, Morrocco, Algeria, Egypt, Syria, the Balkans and Turkey...others to Holland and England, sometimes using them merely as transit points to the New World. This book discusses the Sephardim refugee community in the Balkans only and the rest of the Sephardic Jews who settled elsewhere are actually outside the scope of this book [which is quite disappointing]. I guess the number of Sephardim refugees must have been enormous as even those who settled in the Balkans (and those who chose to stay on in Spain and become Christians) were quite substantial in numbers.
The author does describe in fairly great detail the condition of the Sephardim in the Balkans under Ottoman rule, the organisation of their religious communities and their relationship with other communities; both Gentile (i.e. Armenians, Greeks, Turks) and other Jews (i.e. Greek-speaking Romaniots, Arab-speaking Mizrachim, the Yiddish-speaking Ashkenzaim) in the Ottoman Balkans. Sabbatai Zevi, the "Jewish Messiah" and the conversion of himself and his followers to Islam (hence the founding of the Donmeh community) is also briefly mentioned.
Although, quite a detailed book, I'm only giving it 4 stars because it can be quite a dry read at times, not unlike thesis done by professors which I think that's what the author is.
An excellent read would be "Jewish Communities in Exotic Place" by Ken Blady.

History of the Jews 3. September 2013
Von Lisa Morrison - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Sephardi Jewry is more than a book about the judeo Spanish culture. It takes the reader over many different continents where Jews have settled. Esther Benbassa goes into great depth and detail about the many different Jewish communities of the world ,focusing on other countries like Turkey, The Balkans , Africa ( Morocco, Libya ect.) and of course Spain and Portugal. A great book for any historian or anyone who needs a reference book. And the best thing is the reading is not dry.
Well written. 9. Januar 2015
