    In the words of Michal Held, author, professor, and researcher at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Center for Research on Jewish Language and Literatures, the Jewish language has historically functioned as a “portable homeland.” In her lecture, Michal Held will explore the confluence of Jewish and Spanish culture and language by reflecting on her own Ladino history as well as collected personal narratives from her book Come, I’ll Tell you/ Ven, te Kontare.
