Product Overview

When the Jews were expelled from Medieval Spain, the Toledo community determined to reach the city of their dreams, the city they had been forced to leave behind centuries before: Jerusalem.

Now their tale is told in this new-to-DVD documentary. Foremost Israeli performer Yehoram Gaon narrates in Ladino, the endangered language spoken by the Jewish community in Spain at that time. The authentic sound of the beautiful tongue enhances the tale of the Sephardic Jews and their wanderings.

After leaving Toledo, Spain, the filmmakers continue to the radiant Mediterranean centers of Cordoba, Venice, Salonica, and Istanbul. There's a stop at the ancient community of Amsterdam followed by a visit to the home of Gaon's ancestors - Sarajevo - that sends the story on a tragic detour to the concentration camps Auschwitz and Birkenau (where the Sarajevo Jewish community was virtually eradicated). Last on the trio are the holy cities of Tiberias and Safed in Israel, and on to Jerusalem, where the wanderers close to the circle of their quest.

With Gaon's warm, expressive narration and passionate, mysterious songs in Ladino, and visions of a stunning Mediterranean backdrop, From Toledo to Jerusalem provides moving insights into Sephardic history and culture.
