The Portuguese Jewish Experience: Its Influence on The Americas

Join us for a complimentary lecture by visiting scholar Rabbi Peter Tarlow entitled The Portuguese Jewish Experience: Its Influence on The Americas.

The lecture will take place on Tuesday, December 19, 7:30 pm, at Chabad, 1827 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables.

RSVP: ChabadGables.com/lecture.

Rabbi Tarlow will address the history of the Portuguese Jewish experience and how that experience provides important lessons for American Jewry. Tarlow will not only delve into the impact of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions on Modern Twenty-first Jewish life, but demonstrate how many who fled from Spain to Portugal and then to the New World are very much part of the current Sephardic return to Judaism.

He will also touch upon lessons that American Jews need to learn in these trying times and how the Portuguese Jewish story is not only one of past tragedy but also of future hope and rebirth.

This lecture is brought by Eugene and Barbara Rostov.
