TOLEDANO Family Tree

The name TOLEDANO means from Toledo (Spain). The family was expelled from Spain in 1492 and settled in Salonika.

Daniel TOLEDANO (b. 1570 Salonika, Greece, d. 1640 Fez, Morocco) son of Joseph TOLEDANO was the founder of the two main lines of the TOLEDANO family tree. He left Greece in 1600 with his wife and two sons for Fez, Morocco where he became head of a yeshiva. He is described in sources as "Head of the Castilian Scholars" and as the "Head of the Yeshiva of Fez"

Thanks to Yacov Tal TOLEDANO (b. 1932 Jerusalem) author of The History of TOLEDANO Families published in Sharsheret Hadorot, of The Israel Genealogical Society, and to Moshe EBNER for information on the TOLEDANO Family.
