The Lost and Isolated Jews of Southern Italy
Hosted By: Temple Emanu-El, Haverhill MA
Rabbi Aiello will speak about the remarkable story of the Jewish presence in southern Italy, including Sicily and Calabria, and explain how Jewish families who fled the Spanish inquisition and settled in those areas maintained remnants of their rituals and traditions for nearly 500 years. She will also relate her experiences as a “bat anusim,” whose ancestors were forced to abandon Judaism and accept Christian conversion.
