Reconnecting The Descendants Of Spanish And Portuguese Jewish Communities And The Jewish World
Reconectar is Spanish and Portuguese for reconnect.
This project is aimed at facilitating the reconnection of descendants of the Spanish and Portuguese Jewish communities with the Jewish people.
Around the early part of the last millennium, almost 90% of world Jewry lived in the Iberian Peninsula, a community which led to some of the greatest figures of Jewish history. As a result of forced conversions, expulsions and persecution by The Inquisition, many hundreds of thousands of Jews were brutally and forcibly cut off from their people, many escaping to the Americas.
