Bring Me More Stories: Tales of the Sephardim. By Sally Benforado. ISBN 0915745674. $22.95.
In these short tales, author Benforado weaves together the oral history of a family of Sephardic Jews, who after their expulsion from Spain they moved to form a close knit home in Turkey and then to their new lives in America. They are stories of a heritage that spans the globe, of centuries-old traditions transported to a different world, and of people who held tightly to the ways of their ancestors, who, like them, left their homes to settle in a strange new land. Following their exodus from Spain in 1492, Sephardic Jews were not allowed to remain on Spanish territories in North America, such as New Mexico and Colorado.
