Beginners: Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) Letter by Letter

During this course, students will develop the ability to read words, sentences, and simple texts in Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) written in the Rashi script, using the Hebrew alphabet. The Rashi script was the most common writing system used in Sephardic literature for a significant part of its history. The ability to read the Rashi script grants access to literary texts, newspapers, and other documents, contributing to the preservation of the language and culture, preventing them from extinction.
