Shabbat Shalom- Spanish Moroccan Tradition

The following short song is a version of Shabbat Shalom sung in Spanish-Moroccan tradition.

In the aftermath of the riots of the late 14th century and throughout the 15th century culminating with the decree of Expulsion of all Jews from the Kingdoms of Castile and Aragon, some Spanish Jews settled in North Africa where they fused local Jewish traditions with their own (primarily Castilian) rite.

For another video featuring a Shabbat melody in the Spanish-Portuguese tradition, see my video titled Kabbalat Shabbat: Psalm 95.


By Rabbi Juan Bejarano-Gutierrez the director of the B’nei Anusim Center for Education and author of What is Kosher?
