Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm a Sefaradi Jew of Iraqi descent, but my dad is not religious. I have looked in books like "A Treasury of Sefaradic Laws and Customs", but they tend to not have Iraqi specific Minhagim. I would love to know more about my heritage and customs, supposedly my great-grandfather was Hakham in Iraq, but we've lost all the traditions.

Anyone on this site know any Iraqi customs or traditions?

Thanks.

"A Treasury..." is the one written by Dr. dubrinsky? He focuses mostly on Syrian Jewry from what I understand –  Baal Shemot Tovot May 23 '12 at 15:27

If you understand Hebrew this is a good site even if you don't the site has a translate option on top if you are using Google I think. http://hazzan.qpon.co.il/Front/Tools/homepage.asp
