According to Timur's grandfather Noy(historian) in 17th century the Turkish embassy has arrived in Poland and it was accompanied by an interpretor Jude Rashba.
In August 2016 we confirmed based on the info from american family that Rashba family moved to Ukraine from Turkey. They worked as interpretors in Otoman Empire. That proved our connection to Spanish Jews.
