Upcoming Events on Crypto Jews

Filed under Blog

We call your atten­tion to three con­fer­ences or gath­er­ings on the sub­ject of Crypto Judaism:
1. Dis­cov­er­ing the Legacy of a Hid­den Past, at Con­gre­ga­tion Shaar Hashalom, Hous­ton, May 23. Con­tact 281–557-5588 or 281–488-5861.
2. Crypto Judaism in the Amer­i­can South­west, South­ern Methodist Uni­ver­sity, Dal­las, April 25, http://www.smu.edu/News/EventListing/20100425-Crypto-Judaism.aspx
3. Soci­ety for Crypto-Judaic Stud­ies, Annual Con­fer­ence, Hotel Pala­cio del Rio, San Anto­nio, August 1–3, www.cryptojews.com
I just returned from Texas A&M where I par­tic­i­pated in the Third Annual Crypto-Jewish Con­fer­ence, April 8–9. There is much inter­est today in the topic, from peo­ple of Latino back­ground who are explor­ing the pos­si­bil­ity that their ances­tors were con­verted Sephardic Jews, and from those who are amazed and cap­ti­vated by the con­cept of 500+ years of the sur­vival of a faith despite per­se­cu­tion and prohibition.
