ucLADINO is a student organization dedicated to promoting the use and knowledge of the Judeo-Spanish language(s). Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) is the language spoken by the Sephardic Jews that were expelled from the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the 15th century. The language is based on medieval Castilian, with linguistic influences from Hebrew, Arabic, Portuguese, Italian, French, Turkish, Greek and Serbo-Croatian. Over the centuries, the language has been written in the Hebrew alphabet, Rashi characters, Solitreo cursive, and most recently, Latin characters. Our group consists of undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of majors at UCLA. In addition to weekly language workshops, we hold quarterly guest lectures, and an annual symposium. This years symposium will be held on March 2-3, 2016, at the Charles E. Young Research Library. For our latest schedule, please visit our website.
