In Spain

Toledo, Spain (JTA) — For
\--,
/ a moment there, Toledo
thought its Jews had come
back.
But the bustle of shopping,

touring, praying, curious
Sephardim in the legendary
was only a temporary
• city
.
sight brought about by the
commemoration of the 500th
anniversary of the expulsion
of Spain's Jews.
The concert and spiritual
gathering called "By My
Spirit," which in its humble
beginnings dreamed of
10,000 people streaming to
Toledo, settled into a more
intimate affair of 4,000 peo-
ple, Jews and Spaniards,
who despite the organiza-
tional havoc managed to re-
\ tain the dreamy quality that
originally propelled the idea.
Regular guests paid $200,
while gold-ticket holders
`, shelled out $1,000 (not in-
cluding trip expenses) to
listen to the Israeli
Philharmonic Orchestra,
• directed by Zubin Mehta, in
the world premiere of the
mournful Pasion Sefardi,
written for the event by
Israeli composer Noam
/— Sheriff.

" 'By My Spirit' was
always the star event of the
1 \_, Fifth Centenary com-
memorations," said Manuel
Sassot, the president of the
Spanish government's
• Sepharad '92 committee.
7 "Though the ceremony in
Madrid's synagogue last
March 31 was the most sym-
bolic, this is where contact is
established between the
Jewish and Spanish
\ peoples," Mr. Sassot said.
Queen Sofia of Spain
arrived by helicopter and sat
• the only royal chair
) in
)\— available in the open-air
concert.
The Hatikvah torch was lit
and was used to light seven
other torches handed to the
ambassadors of the countries
that received the exiled Jews
500 years ago: France,
Greece, Bulgaria,
Yugoslavia, Morocco,
Turkey and Italy. These tor-
ches were taken to their
respective countries, many
of which held welcoming
ceremonies.
Among the spectators were
eight members of a religious
order called the Corn-
> munaute de Beatitude, who
received some of the few free
tickets, since they had vows
of poverty and could not af-
:' ford them. "We were very
happy to share this moment
of peace with the people of
Israel," Sister Genevieve
said as the concert finished.
