Jewish Amsterdam: A Small Community with a Giant History

Hosted By: Qesher

Nachshon, one of the few original Portuguese Jews left in Amsterdam will describe what Jewish Amsterdam was like in the 17th century, when the city was the center of the Jewish world: offering the best Jewish education, housing the biggest Rabbis and home to the largest synagogue in the world.
Find out how this community was shaped and how it shaped its environment. How much was lost during World War II and what is left now. A compelling journey embellished with music, visuals and anecdotes.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
