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”
