More than 3,5 millions Jews could ask for the Spanish nationality

More than 3,5 millions Jews, around the world, half a million in Israel, could get the Spanish nationality thanks to their Sephardic origin and the amending the Civil Code that the Spanish government approved on Friday

“Only in Israel there are half a million, and around the world could be 3,5 millions”, said EFE the lawyer Leon Amiras, whose grandparents emigrated from Ottoman Empire to Argentine at the beginnings of the 20th century.

“It’s a great measure and doubtless a recognition to our historical links with Spain 500 years after the expulsion”, said Asher Mosher, born in Skopje, capital of the current Macedonia (ex-Yugoslavia) and emigrated to Israel at 11 years old. .

“That isn’t as for the elder like me, but for the young people” emphasised on the possibilities will open up for thousands of Israelis if the Spanish Congress approves the bill, approved by the Government of Mariano Rajoy last Friday in the cabinet.

The decision of the Spanish Government in local media

Since Friday the main local media reports and give legal advice to the interested people. Only to open a local telephone guide you can discover a lot of candidates.

Calderón, Zoarez (Suárez), Toledano, Abarbanel, Moreli, Bejarano, Medina, Baruj o Abecasis are some examples of Sephardic people who lives in Israel, but there are also apparent origin of Ashkenazi and Bloch, Schlessinger or Sneor in central Europe or expelled who emigrated to countries in North Africa and now carry names like Buhadana, Abulafia, Amsalem, Esayag, Abutbul.

The Sephardic Jews that the senator Angel Pulido (1852-1932) called “Spanish without fatherland” are asily recognizable because they speak Ladino, similar to that of Cervantes Castilian and hundreds of thousands preserved almost intact until well into the twentieth century .

Today few know it, but the majority still respecting cultural and religious traditions were born, some of them as early as the Golden Age of Judaism in the Iberian Peninsula (IX XI centuries).
