Jewish Lisbon and Portugal
Hosted By: Qesher
Join Qesher on a virtual tour through the Jewish heritage of Lisbon, Portugal; a presence that dates back to the Roman era. This visit will allow you to understand the living Jewish community in Lisbon and learn about their history, their traditions, and their everyday life. For centuries after the expulsion, many “conversos” kept practicing their faith in strict secrecy, and the most famous example is the Belmonte Jews, who until recently lived as a strictly isolated community. We will make a detour in our journey to learn about them and about the rapidly growing community of Porto.
Glória Ribeiro was born in Lisbon and completed her university degree in National Tourist Guiding, becoming Portugal’s official guide in five languages in 2004.
