The Secret Jews of Majorca Island

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

A story you need to know. A story the world needs to know.

The Spanish Island of Majorca is known for its beach resorts, limestone mountains, and being home to tennis celebrity Rafa Nadal. But Majorca holds a secret, never discussed in most travel guides. During the Inquisition, the Crypto-Jews or Chuetas publicly professed Catholicism while privately adhering to Judaism. Still, hundreds of Jews were murdered and only 15 families survived.

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

Join guide Dani Rotstein on a special virtual tour of Majorca’s history and its lessons for all Jews today: “The Secret Jews of Majorca Island”
