Shabbat Symposium: The Crypto-Jewish Experience


Save The Date: July 30 Symposium at B’nai Emunah. Presenter: Andrew Nusbaum

Jews were forced to hide their faith and practices at multiple times and places throughout history. Together we will explore the history, culture and strategies of Crypto-Jews in Spain and Portugal, Mexico and South America, and Iran.

Do *you* have a topic you’d like to learn about or teach to others? Get in touch and let us know!

B’nai Emunah believes all members of the community have something to teach each other. One way of putting this into practice is through our Shabbat Symposium program, a rotating adult education opportunity happening every fourth Saturday following morning services. Each class is led by a knowledgeable community volunteer on a topic of their choice. From holidays to history to religious studies, Shabbat Symposium is a fun chance to learn something new from fellow CBE members. Join us for engaged learning and enthusiastic discussion!
