I am delighted to congratulate my friend, Dr. Jeff Malka, for the 2012
IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award he received last night at the Paris
Jeff Malka, is a pioneer in the field of Sephardic genealogy. Already
in the early nineties and under his own initiative, Jeff gave the
Sephardic community a modern tool to research its roots: a website
dedicated to Sephardic genealogy with free access to anyone.
He is the author of Sephardic Genealogy: Discovering Your Sephardic
Ancestors and their World (Avoyaunu, 2002) that won the AJL Best Reference
Book of the Year Award for 2002. This book has become a classic in the
field and an enlarged second edition was published in 2009.
Bravo, Jeff !
