Ladino Rocks!

As usual, my Ladino is great, my Hebrew is not. Do you think Ladino will make a comeback? Let’s hope so.

Watch these kiddies singing this beautiful Ladino folk song. Check out the lyrics below.

Durme, durme hijiko de madre,
Durme, durme s’in ansio y dolor;
Sienti joya palavrikas de tu madre.
Las palavras di Shema Yisrael
Durme, durme hijiko de madre,
Con hermozura de Shema Yisrael.

  1. My friend Shirley Behar, who learned Ladino from her Turkish Jewish immigrant parents in Detroit, would want nothing better than to see this language make a comeback.
