Another Golden Age: Doreen Alhadeff on Seattle’s Sephardic Renaissance

EK On The Go – Episode #23

Join us in this episode with Doreen Alhadeff, Co-Founder of the Seattle Sephardic Network and the first Jewish American to receive Spanish citizenship under a 2015 law permitting descendants of Jews expelled in the 15th Century to apply for it.

Doreen’s family history and life choices connect her to both the 21st Century in Seattle and the 15th Century in Spain, with many far-flung stopping points including Istanbul and New York City in between.
