Families everywhere can relate to the pride of watching a baby gain new milestones. The parents in this story congratulate their baby with “mazal bueno,” which means “congratulations” in Ladino. Also known as Judeo-Spanish, Ladino is a traditional language among Sephardic Jews, and author Sarah Aroeste is helping to keep it alive.
