I have started a You Tube Channel where I will be posting Sephardic liturgy in the Spanish-Portuguese and Judeo-Spanish tradition. This is the first video and is Psalm 95 from the Kabbalat Shabbat service sung to the tune of the Judeo Spanish tradition. Please check it out and subscribe! Rabbi Juan Bejarano-Gutierrez.
For another video showcasing the Judeo-Spanish liturgical tradition, visit Psalm 146.
Rabbi Juan Marcos Bejarano-Gutierrez is a graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas where he earned a bachelor of science in electrical engineering. He studied at the Siegal College of Judaic Studies in Cleveland and received a Master of Arts Degree with Distinction in Judaic Studies.
He completed his doctoral studies at the Spertus Institute of Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago in 2015. His doctoral dissertation is titled “Complex Identities: Christian and Jewish Attitudes Towards Conversos” and was accepted in September 2015.
He also studied at the American Seminary for Contemporary Judaism and received rabbinic ordination in 2011 from Yeshivat Mesilat Yesharim.
