Résumé

In 1492, the Spanish Jews, called Sephardic Jews, were ordered to leave Spain. This expelled population has managed to transmit its traditions for 500 years.
This film shows the daily life of the Spanish Jew communities from Istanbul, Salonique and Paris, and also their rites, cultural activities and religious holidays.
