Who were the Sephardic Jews of the Ottoman Empire? What lasting lessons does their spiritual life provide for future generations?

"How did the Judeo-Spanish-speaking Jews of the Ottoman Empire manage to achieve spiritual triumph? To answer this question, we need to have a firm understanding of their historical experience.... We need to be aware of the dark, unpleasant elements in their environments; but we also need to see the spiritual, cultural light in their dwellings that imbued their lives with meaning and honor."
―from Chapter 1, “The Inner Life of the Sephardim”

In this groundbreaking work, Rabbi Marc Angel explores the teachings, values, attitudes and cultural patterns that characterized Judeo-Spanish life over the generations and how the Sephardim maintained a strong sense of pride and dignity, even when they lived in difficult political, economic and social conditions. Along with presenting the historical framework and folklore of Jewish life in the Ottoman Empire, Rabbi Angel focuses on what you can learn from the Sephardic sages and from their folk wisdom that can help you live a stronger, deeper spiritual life.

From the Publisher:

Rabbi Marc D. Angel, PhD, is rabbi of the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue, Congregation Shearith Israel of New York City (founded 1654). Raised in a Judeo-Spanish family, Rabbi Angel has been researching and writing about Sephardic culture for over thirty years. He is author of Voices in Exile: A Study in Sephardic Intellectual History and the editor of Exploring Sephardic Customs and Traditions.

From the Inside Flap:

Jewish tradition teaches that each person is put on earth to accomplish a unique mission. This is true of individuals--but is also true of civilizations.

Rabbi Marc Angel delves into the history of the Judeo-Spanish people of the Ottoman Empire and uncovers the cultural influences that helped them maintain their pride, honor and sense of well-being, even during the long years when they were in economic and political distress. A first-of-its-kind look at the spiritual lives of Sephardic Jews, this informative and inspiring work shows you what their culture has to say about the triumph of the human spirit--then and now.
