Title: From Sepharad to Florida: a material journey
Physical Description: PowerPoint Presentation
Creator: Jefferson, Rebecca ( Author, Primary )
 Notes
Abstract: A PowerPoint presentation given to the B'nai Israel Men's Club by Rebecca Jefferson on June 9, 2013. The presentation provided a brief history of Sephardi Jewish culture, and a summary account of the movement and resettlement of Sephardim around the world after the expulsion from Spain in 1492. Particular emphasis was given to the individuals and communities of Sephardi origin living in Florida today and the need to collect more materials to provide resources for researching this lesser-known history. The talk was accompanied by a physical display of some of the special materials in the Price Library of Judaica.
