Sephardic Weddings: Traditions of Yeseterday and Today

Sun, 20 Aug, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Sephardim (Jews of Spanish or Arabic descent) lived in numerous diverse environments and developed practices that were infused with local flare and distinct from those of the Ashkenazim (Jews of European descent). This talk will discuss wedding traditions followed by different groups of Sephardim in the past, as well as those still practiced today by some communities. The presentation will pay attention to music, dress, and minhagim (customs), and introduce some Ladino (the Sephardic language analogue to Yiddish) proverbs and sayings that relate to this festive occasion.
