In 1850, when the United States acquired New Mexico as a territory the gringos began to steal their Spanish land grants and tried to kill the Indians and acquire the Indian reservations. The two minorities became allies and their enemy became the United States Government. In the 1800s, young Benjamin Benavidez who had a photographic memory, a winning personality and an outstanding singing voice saw first-hand what the U.S. Government was doing. He studied night and day, took the Bar and passed it. He was a lawyer. Judges and lawyers were all gringos and there was no way he could fight them in court so he did the next best thing. He mastered Poker and began playing with the rich and powerful gringos, the judges and lawyers in Santa Fe. From there he branched out throughout the US. With his winning personality, he made friends with the rich and powerful. The Gamblin' Rabbi always won honestly if he could, but never lost. He simply serenaded the losers. Also known as Don Benjamin Benavidez, he married a Navajo woman. They had three sons. The greatest obstacle that Señor Gamblin' Rabbi stumbled over and over again is the promise he made to his dying mother that at least one of his sons would marry a Ladina.

About the Author:

Jo Roybal Izay was born in the village of Llano located at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains along northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Her ancestors were among the first colonizers in the late 1700 in Las Trampas and later, in Llano. Raised by her elderly grandparents, she listened intently as they described the hardship fleeing from the Holy Inquisition that had for centuries followed the Ladinos from Spain, to Old Mexico and to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Izay has been writing and lecturing on the Sephardim and the Penitentes for the past 40 years. She is the author of "Mi Mochito From Northern New Mexico" and "Penitente, the Credo in Verse"
