Sephardic Judaism 101

Monday, September 28 at 12:15 am

Most American Jews are less informed or unaware of non-Ashkenazi expressions of Judaism. In conversation with Rabbi Aaron, Rabbi Haim Ovadia—founder of the online community Torah veAhava—offers a brief introduction to the history and practices of Sefardi Jews, sharing some of the distinguishing features of Sephardic traditions and culture. Rabbi Ovadia has served as a pulpit rabbi for the past 30 years in synagogues across the world and is a faculty member at the Academy for Jewish Religion of California.
