Beginning with the history of Jews in Spain, journalist Sarina Roffé discusses the 1492 Expulsion, the history of Jews in Syria, & their immigration to the Americas. Roffé traces Sepahrdic jews from Iberia to Syria to the Americans. She writes the 100-year history of Brooklyn’s Syrian Jewish Community, discussing the sociological impact of careers, philanthropy, traditions, and educational beliefs as they changed over a century. At the same time, Roffe discusses the genealogical history of several rabbinic families and their centuries old dynasties. Forward is written by Dr. Walter Zenner A’H, Branching Out From Sepharad (New York: Sephardic Heritage Project, 2017).

The introductory and general sections include an early history of Hebrews in Hispania, until the expulsion of the Jews from Iberia in 1492.
The book graphically describes how Jewish migrants from Iberia traveled across the Mediterranean to Syria, and established a vibrant community which thrived from !501 to the 20th century.From Aleppo,descendants of the rabbinic families migrated to the USA, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Central and South America. They retained their religion and culture, but generally integrated into the countries they settled.
The biographies in the book and the detailed genealogies presented illustrate the author's 15 years research, scholarship, professional experience and love of the subject. It makes a very interesting read.
