Bringing Together and Educating Descendants of Sephardic Conversos
In the following recording, Rabbi Abraham Lopes Cardozo records Hodu L’Adonai Ki Tov (Give Thanks to the L-RD for He is Good, For His Mercy Endures Forever) in the tradition of the Spanish-Portuguese Jewish community.
This tune is sung on the first day of Passover (Pesach).
My family has sung this version for many years and sang it again at our community Passover Seder this year. We were joined by a total of 28 people, many of whom had Crypto-Jewsh backgrounds.
