Guest Speaker Rabbi Arinna Shelby: “The Crypto-Jews”

Also called marranos or conversos, Crypto-Jews were those Jewish people forced to convert to Catholicism in 14th-15th century Spain. Rabbi Shelby will present the history of these people with a glimpse into their everyday lives and secret practice of Judaism. After lunch, we will watch The Secret Jews of Calabria, about Jews of southern Italy descended from Crypto-Jews.
