Jewish Lisbon and Portugal: A Community Reconnecting with its Past

Hosted By: Qesher

Join Qesher for a virtual tour exploring 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. The most famous example are the Belmonte Jews, who until recently lived as a strictly isolated community.

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.
