The Taylor-Schechter Unit is back with its 'Fragment of the Month', for July and August. The August piece was written by a doctoral student at Hebrew University named Dotan Arad. I recently heard him give a fascinating speech (at this conference) about the ways in which Sefardi immigrants, refugees from the Spanish expulsion, did or did not learn Arabic in their new homes in Syria and Egypt.
