About this talk
The Jewish History of Spain is one of the most glorious and most tragic passages in the history of Jewish People. In the first forty-five minutes of this talk we'll explore together those thrilling events and times: from the very beginning of Jewish presence and life in the Iberian Peninsula, through its Golden Age, until its tragic interruption and its recent revival.
After this, we invite you to stay for the second part of the presentation, where we will focus on our "Sephardic Jewish Heritage Tour to Spain" on October 18-26, 2023 (with an optional extension to Barcelona). We will follow the daily program with Moisés, who will take us through the highlights of the planed visits to Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Toledo, Lucena and Madrid. We will discuss the itinerary, the hotels and food. Moisés will be available to answer any logistical questions, and if the tour looks exciting to you, you can book a spot.
