The Hidden History of Jewish People on the Islands of Madeira and Azores and the Unsolved Mystery of a Sefer Torah

Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District

Renowned author and historian Irene Shaland will present on the hidden Jewish history of the Madeira and Azores archipelagos, two Portuguese autonomous regions in the Atlantic. Known for their mild climate and dramatic landscapes, these popular tourist destinations have an often-overlooked Jewish presence dating back to their 14th and 15th-century discovery. The presentation will uncover this understudied aspect of the islands’ history, including the potential Crypto-Jewish ancestry of Madeira’s discoverer, Joao Zarco.
