Jews of Turkey – past and present
28 December @ 7:00 pm
There have been Jews in Turkey since at least the fifth century BCE. Spanish and Portuguese Jews expelled from Spain after 1492 were welcomed into the Ottoman Empire and formed a Ladino-speaking majority. Professor Yitzchak Kerem of the Hebrew University will give us a potted history of the community through to the upheavals of the 20th century. What future does the community have?
