Escape and Assimilation: Spanish and Portuguese Jews after 1492 - Seudah and talk, Shabbat August 4t
Gabi Peretz and Avigail Ben-Gad have been working hard over the past few years tracing their respective family histories back to the Inquisition-era Iberian Peninsula. Gabi's forebears followed the path of conversion in Spain; Avigail's ancestors became crypto-Jews in Portugal. Come hear their stories and learn how differing historical forces shaped the trajectories of both families.
Please bring a cold dairy/pareve dish to share. If possible, please bring the dish to Nahum's on Friday if you live outside the eruv. Thanks.
