Learn Spanish-Portuguese and Moroccan Shabbat melodies! Sephardic music is equal parts wistful and festive, with origins as diverse and colorful as its melodies.

The Sephardi people descended from exiled Iberian Peninsula Jews who spread from Portugal and Spain into former Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia, and Bulgaria. Their music evolved from Ottoman, Eastern Mediterranean, and Moroccan traditions into what we now know as Sephardic music.

This class is a special "sneak peek" into the Kabbalat Shabbat music of Friday, May 8, at 6:30 pm.
