Jewish Lisbon and Portugal: A Community Reconnecting With its Past
Hosted By: Qesher
Qesher is hosting a virtual tour focused on the Jewish heritage of Lisbon, Portugal, with roots tracing back to the Roman era. This online journey offers an opportunity to learn about the history, traditions, and contemporary life of the Jewish community in Lisbon. The tour will also explore the history of the “conversos” who practiced their faith in secrecy following the expulsion, with a special focus on the Belmonte Jews, known for their isolated community practices. Additionally, there will be a segment dedicated to the expanding Jewish community in Porto. This virtual tour aims to provide insights into the rich and diverse history of Jewish life in Portugal.
