11:00 AM - 12:00 PMZoom

The Crypto-Jews of Portugal

For almost 500 years, a small community of Spanish and Portuguese Jews, fleeing the Inquisition, were able to maintain their religious identity by practicing Judaism in secret.  All the other settlements of Crypto or hidden Jews vanished over the years. How did this community survive and what is their future? Through still photos and film clips we explore the fascinating story of the last remaining community of “secret” Jews on the Iberian Peninsula.

Speakers: Dr. Yona & Herb Shulman
