Sefarad: A Journey Through Time and Space

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

According to some traditions, Jewish life on the Iberian Peninsula began during the time of King Solomon, though modern scholars believe that it likely originated some time during the Roman Empire.

From the Golden Age of Spanish Jewry under Muslim rule, through centuries of persecution, forced conversion and ultimately Expulsion, the compelling and critical story of Sefarad lives on until today.

Join Dr. Isaac Amon for “Sefarad: A Journey Through Time and Space”!

This event is at 1 PM EST and at 8 PM in Israel.

In his career, he has visited sites of the Inquisition and Nazi death camps and ghettos throughout Europe. He has also met with survivors of 20th-century genocides (Rwanda, the former Yugoslavia, and the Holocaust) as well as Benjamin Ferencz, the last living Nuremberg Prosecutor.
