Sephardic events around the world

An excellent monthly newsletter on Sephardic activities worldwide is the monthly Sephardic cultural events bulletin. Read the December issue online here. Although written in Spanish, it is rather easy to understand.

Activities are listed for Spain (Barcelona, Besalu, Girona, Madrid, Melilla, Segovia and Valencia), Germany, Argentina, Austria, US, France, Serbia, UK and Israel. Events include films, concerts, art exhibits and more.

Some highlights:

Barcelona. January 1, 2008. Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band in a New Year concert at the Liceu Grand Theatre. Although definitely not Sephardic, it sounds like lots of fun!

Girona.Inauguration of new exhibits at the Girona Museum of Jewish History and a photo exhibit at the Bonastruc Center

Madrid. Theater, art exhibit, a Hanukkah exhibit open through January 24.

Melilla. A presentation on Casa Sefarad-Israel and its 2008 programming.
