Seattle's Sephardic Families

Founded more than a century ago, Sephardic Bikur Holim Congregation and Congregation Ezra Bessaroth remain the spiritual core of Seattle’s Sephardic community and its families.

“Dear Sephardim, thank you for your loyalty and for holding like a cherished treasure your language – Judeo-Spanish or djudezmo as well as Haketia – and your customs, which are none other than our own. And thank you, too, for making love prevail over rancor and for teaching your children to love this Spanish homeland.”
