Synopsis: LADINO REVERIES relates with warmth and poignancy the assimilation of the Sephardic immigrants into American culture, from Ellis Island to the Lower East Side, through Harlem, the Bronx, and beyond. Proud to be Americans after 500 years of exile from Spain and modest prosperity in Ottoman Turkey, their cultural and linguistic challenges are conveyed with light-hearted candor and a strong sensitivity to their plight.

Particular attention is given to their American-born children, who struggled optimistically and tenaciously to bridge the cultural gaps between the old world and the new. Highlighted as well are the differences, and surprising similarities, between the Sephardic and Ashkenazi communities, and the graceful beauty of the beloved 15th century Spanish of the Sephardim Ladino which after five centuries is now in danger of vanishing completely. This revised anthology of the original columns will inspire tears and laughter, as the resilience and character of the Sephardic immigrants and their children unfold.

About the Author: Hank Halio, born on the Lower East Side of New York to Sephardic parents, was raised in Harlem and the East Bronx. In 1947, he married Phyllis Torres, daughter of Albert J. Torres, publisher and editor of the Ladino newspaper, LA VARA. Embracing his Sephardic heritage, he has conducted extensive research on that subject, and now retired to Florida, he devotes his time to his column LADINO REVERIES. It appears in several Sephardic publications throughout the United States and enjoys circulation to locales as far away as New Zealand.
