Popular Culture and Daily Life among the Sephardic Jews of the Ottoman Empire
What happened to the Sephardic Jews after the expulsion from Spain in 1492? What were their lives like in their new homes? The legal questions that Sephardim asked their rabbis and the answers those rabbis wrote in return—collectively known as responsa—are full of surprising information; we will examine some of these fascinating documents to see what we can learn about everyday life among the exiled Sephardim.
