Virtual Trip to the Jews of Amsterdam

Hosted By: Golden Slipper Gems

There is a special connection between the Jewish communities of Philadelphia and of Amsterdam. Mikveh Israel, the first synagogue in Philadelphia, follows the traditions of the Amsterdam Esnoga (in the photo) and was established by Spanish Portuguese Jews who were early immigrants to the New World. The Spanish Portuguese community settled in Amsterdam already in the 16th century after the expulsion from Spain. The Ashkenazi community arrived in Amsterdam a hundred years later after riots in Poland. Their synagogue is standing across from the Sephardic synagogue. Currently there are about 15,000 Jews living in Amsterdam. Come and learn about the fascinating history of this Jewish city beyond the story of Anne Frank. Join Nachshon Rodrigues Pereira, a native Dutchman who will discuss the past and present community of Amsterdam.
