(Times of Israel / Worthy News)– The Spanish government has approved a draft bill that proposes to grant citizenship to descendants of Spanish Jews who were forced into exile 500 years ago.

Spain's Council of Ministers, the Spanish cabinet, on Friday approved the draft law, which proposes to dispense with the requirement to relinquish foreign nationalities and which sets several criteria determining ways descendants of Spanish Jews can qualify for Spanish nationality, the Spanish daily El Pais reported.

The criteria include recognition of Sephardic ancestry by a competent rabbinical authority in the applicant’s country of residence, according to El Pais, but applicants may also present other credentials such as family ancestry records and knowledge of Ladino, the Judeo-Spanish language.
