Jews of the Amazon
8 June 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Tuesday 8 June, 7:30 pm UK time. Did you know that Sephardi Jews from Morocco came to Brazil and Peru from 1810 onwards during the rubber boom, and settled in the Amazon? In the course of his quest for traces of these Jews, our intrepid lecturer Dr Shaul Zadka stumbled, among other oddities, on the grave of a rabbi revered by Christians. He returns to Harif with tales of another exciting adventure, told for the first time. Recording here.
