Music Among the Crypto-Jews of Portugal: An Almost Vanished World

Hosted By: Qesher

Qesher presents an exploration of the Crypto-Jews of Portugal, focusing on the Jews of Belmonte and Tras-os-Montes, who lived in isolation after the early 20th-century “discovery.” The discussion will cover songs and prayers in religious and secular contexts and their adaptation in the internet and social media age. Judith Cohen, a Canadian ethnomusicologist and singer, will introduce interview subjects and emphasize their lives and cultural practices.

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.
