The full moon in April marks Passover, the remembrance of the Hebrew's flight from slavery. Jesus transformed these Passover symbols to remember our flight from death. The next lunar cycle marks Wesak, honoring the major passages of Guatama Buddha's life. All three of these celebrations, over two lunar cycles, celebrate freedom: from slavery, death, and illusion.

Ladino Chorus Commemorates Passover by Keeping Endangered Language Alive

From Rhonda J. Miller | Part of the Ladino: The Endangered Language of the Spanish Jews series | 04:46

As Jews around the globe celebrate Passover to commemorate the exodus from slavery in Egypt, a community chorus in Los Angeles is keeping alive the language of another group of Jewish refugees - those who were expelled from Spain in 1492. They carried with them a Judeo-Spanish language called Ladino, which picked up words from the countries they crossed.

As Jews around the globe celebrate Passover to commemorate the exodus from slavery in Egypt, a community chorus in Los Angeles is keeping alive the language of another group of Jewish refugees - those who were expelled from Spain in 1492.  They carried with them a Judeo-Spanish language called Ladino, which picked up words from Turkish, Italian, French, Hebrew and Arabic, as they traveled in search of more welcoming territory. Rhonda Miller has the story of a community chorus in Los Angeles singing to keep the endangered Ladino language alive.
