19 October 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Sunday, 19 October 2014

Doors open 7.30 pm. Lecture 8pm. Light refreshments. Conventional wisdom has it that Jewish Marranos from Spain found in North Africa a haven from persecution by the Spanish Inquisition. But there were periods in Morocco when Jews were forced to convert to Islam. In what promises to be a fascinating talk, Paul Fenton, Professor of Hebrew and Oriental Studies at the Paris-Sorbonne University, France will explore the little-known subject of Jewish converts to Islam who secretly practised their faith in Morocco.The Montefiore hall, Lauderdale Road synagogue, 2 Ashworth Road, London W9 1JY.
