Jewish Lisbon and Portugal

Hosted By: Qesher

Join us 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 are 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.

Participants can choose to contribute $9, $18 or $36

This talk is live and interactive, the number of participants is limited. With your contribution to Qesher you will also be donating to the “Associação Israelita de Beneficência Somej Nophlim – Amparo dos Pobres”. This association was created in 1876 and has helped several Jews and non-Jews to stay out of poverty, especially during WWII.

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.
