Spanish Family
Gets Apology

Toledo, Spain (JTA) —
Queen Sofia of Spain receiv-
ed a ketubah chronicling the
marriages of the Toledano
family from the time Daniel
Toledano, chief rabbi of
,, Castille, left the land of his
ancestors in 1492.
In turn, 20 members of the
Toledano family each
received the key to the city
of Toledo with letters asking
for forgiveness for the events
that led to their exile.
Few names evoke the
- Sephardi legacy more than
Toledano. And those bearing
the name — who gathered
from Morocco, France,
England, the U.S., Israel
and Geneva — had mixed
feelings about the ceremony.
More than 2,000 people at-
tended the emotional
gathering, which was held in
the Plaza de Zocodover,
where Jews were burned
during the Inquisition.
Toledo Mayor Joaquin San-
chez Garrido welcomed the
Toledanos back to their
roots.
"When I received the key,"
said Rabbi Pinhas Toledano,
head of the Sephardi Con-
gress Beit-Din in London, "I
felt bitterness and indigna-
-- -tion. Why should we have
been expelled when we con-
tributed so much to the
Spanish civilization?
"But then I felt perhaps we
should go and pray. I was •
very moved in the Transito
synagogue. It was a dream to
me that became a reality,"
he said.
Rabbi Michael Toledano,
head of the Or Baruch
yeshiva in Jerusalem, felt
the key was "a symbol of the
defiance of a people who had
survived, maintained the
faith and built a strong
Israel."
Other Toledano family
members who received the
key included Jacques, a
French businessman who fi-
nanced and headed the dele-
> gation; Rabbi Itzhak, of
Paris; Boris, president of the
' Casablanca Jewish com-
munity; Joseph, historian;
Dany, president of the
Toledano Association in
CT)-
Israel; Avi, Israeli singer;
Shmuel, adviser to Yitzhak
Shamir on Arab Affairs;
Ehud, of Tel Aviv Univer-
sity; Sam, of the Spanish
Federation of Jewish Com-
munities; Edward, British
sculptor; Prof. Henri Chaim,
an expert in Islamic affairs
from New York; and Ralph,
manager of the Paris-based
Karl Lagerfeld fashion
house.
