Prior to the event at Magen David Sephardic Congregation on November 14, 2004, Shelomo Alfassa, Executive Director of the ISFSP was invited to visit a Ladino discussion group in Rockville, Maryland for a Vijita de Alhad. The afternoon was spent reading Ladino literature and poetry in a beautiful home where the host Mr. Gabbay served traditional Sephardic foods to the many distinguished guests. It was a splendid afternoon, spent with those who spoke French, Greek, Ladino, Hebrew and Turkish. A warm and pleasant day, the event will be remembered for some time to come.
