Despite numerous historical studies of this time period and its people, includingFarewell to Salonica by Leon Sciaky, the works of the Bulgarian Sephardic author Canetti,History of the Israelites of Salonica by Joseph Nehama,Salonica by Mark Mazower, and the works of Abraham Galante, there are few livinghistories. InHistory of the Turkish Jews and Sephardim author Elli Kohen attempts to combine the patience of the chronicler with the folksy humor of the storyteller, without undermining the presentation of the Sephardic Jews cultural history. It is a book of love for all the cultures that have come to coexist on the shores of the Bosphorus. This comprehensive work explores the early Ottomon period, the Sephardi period, and concludes on the eve of the Sabbastian upheaval.

In style and breadth, this new work complements the existing literature on this historical period. Below are some of the events and stories chronicled in the History of the Turkish Jew and Sephardim: - The mysterious sect of Judaizing Chiones -
