5151 Chemin de la Côte-Ste-Catherine, Montreal, QC H3W 1M6


The future of Sephardi Judaism in the diaspora. “I do not have a drop of Spanish blood but Spain runs in my veins”. Prolific author, Pierre Assouline has never forgotten his Sephardi roots that are buried in the history of the Iberian Peninsula, particularly in Spain. He insists on claiming this identity as a legitimate quest for his origins. Who other than Assouline could better address the eternal debate on the future of this Judaism?
