An evening about Jewish Pirates

8 November 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Wednesday 8 November, 8 pm.

Whoever heard of Jewish pirates ? Contrary to the Hollywood stereotype, Jews were ambitious adventurers who sought revenge at a time when Spain was a major maritime power, and a safe haven from the Spanish Inquisition for themselves and their families.

Join us for an evening about Jewish pirates with a discussion live via Skype with Arnon Schorr and Richard Rasner. The evening will feature a showing ofThe Pirate Captain Toledano, an award-winning short fiction film by Arnon Z. Shorr. To-date, it is the only dramatisation of Inquisition-era Jewish piracy,  never before seen in England. Arnon Z Shorr is the maker of the film and Richard Rasner a pirate history consultant, who appears in the film.  Booking £10 from Spiro Ark Tel 0207 794 4655 ( or Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue, Norrice Lea, London N2 0RE.
