Cassorla/Kassorla Families of Monastir
There were quite a few Cassorla/Kassorla families in Monastir and the surrounding area.
They subsequently dispersed to other cities and countries--such as Palestine/Israel, France, Chile, the USA.
 
As far as we know, all the Jewish Cassorla/Kassorla-s sojourned in the Monastir vicinity, before continuing on.
Although these all appear to be separate and distinct families, a common thread in them is the large number of Rabbis. This is so characteristic, that even among some Temuco Cassorlas, which have become highly secularized, the memory of familial piety persists in family lore that Cassorlas were once "Kohanim."
Places
Learn about Cazorla, the town in Southern Spain (Andalusia) from which these families were expelled, taking its name with them.
