Takanot

Takanot (Regulations) of the Sephardic-Portuguese Jewish Community in Amsterdam from 1639 until 1800

This project involves the publication of a scientific critical edition of the Takanot (regulations) of the Sephardic-Portuguese Jewish community in Amsterdam from 1639 until 1800. This edition will include the original text in Portuguese and a Hebrew translation, and will have an extensive introduction, notes, and bibliographies.

The publication of the Takanot of the Sephardic-Portuguese Jewish community in Amsterdam from 1639 until 1800 will make one of the central documents in the history of Dutch Jewry accessible to those who don't read Portuguese and will enable them to follow the history of the Sephardic-Portuguese community directly.
