A type of Spanish spoken by Sephardic Jews spoken before they were expelled from Spain in the 14th century. It has been preserved since with some modifications. In some ways Yiddish is to German as Ladino is to Spanish.
I grew up speaking Ladino, because my ancestors were Sephardic Jews.

E.g. of Ladino
"Shalom buenas tadres" for "Hola buenas tardes" in Spanish.
