Foundation for the Advancement of Sephardic Studies and Culture

Launched in January 2002, the new web site of the Foundation for the Advancement of Sephardic Studies and Culture (FASSC) showcases the work of the organization: "preserving and promoting the complex and centuries-old culture of the Sephardic communities of Turkey, Greece, the Balkans, Europe and the U.S." The FASSC also promotes the preservation and study of, and devotes an entire section to, Ladino ---the Judeo-spanish language. In May, the FASSC site hosted a Ladino Internet audio-chat session, and future chats are planned. Other sections of the web site feature FASSC publications, including books, videos, and exhibits; and the FASSC Digital Archives of Sephardica, images of historic Sephardic texts such as a 1695 haggadah from Amsterdam; Hakham Yehuda Ha'Levi Poem, 1586; and calendars from Sephardic communities in Paris, Salonica, Constantinople and Buenos Aires.
