Being Sephardim

Sephardic law and customs means the practice of Judaism as observed by the Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews, so far as it is peculiar to themselves and not shared with other Jewish groups such as the Ashkenazim. Sephardim do not constitute a separate denomination within Judaism, but rather a distinct cultural, juridical and philosophical tradition.

Sephardim are, primarily, the descendants of Jews from the Iberian peninsula. They may be divided into the families that left in the Expulsion of 1492 and those that remained as crypto-Jews and left in the following few centuries.

In religious parlance, and by many in modern Israel, the term is used in a broader sense to include all Jews of Ottoman or other West Asian or North African backgrounds, whether or not they have any historic link to Spain, though some prefer to distinguish between Sephardim proper and Mizraḥi Jews.

Anusim (Crypto-Judaism)
List of Sephardic surnames

According to the rules, people with these surnames, which are Jewish and belong to a community organization recognized qualify for citizenship. There are 5,220 names on the list.This list of names is also for you who want to find their inheritances Sefardíesy not having the purpose to mislead anyone to change their espirituales or religious beliefs.
