Service Description

This course will introduce students to Haketia (Western Judeo-Spanish, Haquetia, Jaquetia), the language of the Western (North African) Sephardic Jews, which survives in postvernacular fashion, mainly in Morocco, Spanish Africa (Ceuta, Melilla), Venezuela and Israel. Students will acquire basic knowledge of the grammar, syntax and lexicon of the language through reading and listening to selections from the rich culture of Western Sephardic Jews across Morocco, Spanish Africa and beyond. A $50 deposit is required, which will be returned only upon completing at least 12 of the 14 hours of this summer school. Please, do not forget to answer the questions asked within the booking form, without which your application will be considered incomplete. The instructor also reserves the right to reject your booking based on these answers, which he might do within a period of 48 hours. In that case, your deposit will be returned in full.
