How to use "Sephardi" in context?

The Sephardi Jews are a Jewish religious and cultural group who follow the customs and traditions of the Sephardi Jews, who are traditionally descended from Jews who settled in the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Islands from the 12th century onwards.

Sephardim sometimes also extend the term to encompass Ashkenazi Jews who marry in accordance with the customs of the Sephardi community.
