Episode 738 | Crypto-Jews in New Mexico
 
22:11
This week we present a companion piece to the national program "The Story of the Jews," which airs beginning March 25th. NMiF Producer Megan Kamerick focuses on the experience of conversos or "crypto-Jews" in New Mexico. In 1492, the Edict of Expulsion launched the diaspora of Sephardic Jews from Spain. Many found their way to the New World, including New Mexico, although they could not openly practice their religion. Dr. Frances Levine, director of the New Mexico History Museum, and historian Roger Martínez-Dávila flesh out the history of these people and their role in New Mexico heritage and identity. Sonya Loya, an artisan and educator who has recovered her family's secret Jewish past, discusses her personal journey and conversion to Judaism.
Sephardic Portuguese Citizenship Application (VLOG #5)
 
08:01
In this video I discuss the Sephardic Portuguese Citizenship Application project, which I mentioned in previous videos. This project is a sourced document tracing my cousin and I's shared Sephardic ancestry back to Portugal. I have been building the document using the Genealogical Standard Proof, which gives credibility to the conclusions made in the document. I talk about some of the specific Sephardic families we descend from who were kicked out of Portugal in the Inquisition. The first family is the de Castro Tartas family from Bragança, Portugal. My 9th great grandmother is Esther de Castro Tartas and she married a man name Jacob Querido. Esther was born in France along with her siblings but her father came from Portugal. In Portugal they were Conversos which meant they pretended to be Catholic while secretly holding onto the Jewish faith. From France the family moved to Amsterdam and then Isaac de Castro Tartas, brother of Esther, went to Brazil to further his studies. He went to the capital of Brazil where he was recognized as a Jew and arrested. He was sent to Portugal where he kept true to his faith and was eventually sentenced to death along with 5 other men. As he was burned alive he recited the Shema which could be heard through the flames. His words were repeated for years after his death by the community of Lisbon and Isaac was considered a martyr of the Inquisition. The second family is the Belmont-Belmonte family. I have three separate lines of descent from this family that all trace back to Portugal. Two of the lines trace back to Jacob Israel Belmonte who went by the alias of Diogo Nunez Belmonte while in Portugal. Jacob was born in the 1570s and immigrated to Amsterdam in the early 1600s, eventually becoming one of the wealthiest men in Amsterdam. He helped found the Beth Haim cemetery in Ouderkerk and is considered one of the founders of the Portuguese Jewish community in Amsterdam. The third line from the Belmonte family descends from Don Iago Sampayo y Belmonte, who is possibly the grandfather of Jacob Israel Belmonte but it has not been proven. Don Iago's father is Lopo Vaz de Sampaio who was the Governador de India from 1526 to 1529. He fought for the Portuguese crown and helped capture Fort Mahim in 1529.

Sephardic Jews eye return to Spain - reporter

In 1492 Spain's Catholic monarchs passed a law, the Edict of Expulsion of the Jews, which forced Spanish Jews either to become Catholic or go into exile. The people who left Spain were called Sephardic Jews, from the Hebrew word Sepharad, meaning a place from which people are exiled. Exiled Jews kept their house keys as a reminder of their lost homeland, and the diaspora spread from the Ottoman Empire to the New World. Five hundred years later, Spain is considering a law which will grant Spani… READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2014/08/29/sephardic-jews-eye-return-to-spain What is in the news today?

Are You Jewish or Are You Hispanic? A Look at Hybrid Identity - Ana Gómez-Bravo
 
13:08
What is identity? This talk presents identity as an evolving, "unfixable" concept that moves fluidly between countries, cultures, languages, religions, and gender expectations. The medievalist Ana Gómez-Bravo explains how the fifteenth-century Spanish Jews known as conversos, or converts to Christianity, provided a peer group for her own shifting self-perception. Ana Gómez-Bravo is Associate Professor in the Division of Spanish and Portuguese Studies at the University of Washington, where she is also faculty for the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies. Her research interests include medieval Spain, gender studies, and the intersections among food, culture, and texts. Prof. Gómez-Bravo received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Her new book is Textual Agency: Writing Culture and Social Networks in Fifteenth-Century Spain (University of Toronto Press, 2013). Comment Policy: The Stroum Center for Jewish Studies believes that comments are a valuable source of dialogue and wants to include your thoughts as part of the conversation. To create a welcoming space for all, we won't publish comments that are profane, irrelevant, self-promotional or that make personal attacks.

Latinos discovering their Jewish roots
 
08:01
Over the years, many Latin Americans have begun discovering that they have Sephardic Jewish ancestry from Spain and Portugal through their family history and genetic testing. History reports that thousands of Spanish Jews and Portuguese Jews converted to Catholicism by force during the Inquisition to not get persecuted and killed. Many of these Jews who converted to Judaism still experienced discrimination in Spain and Portugal which caused thousands of these secret Jews to immigrate to Latin America, mainly to Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico etc. Because of this, Judaism in Latin America has increased; where hundreds and thousands of Latinos have been reported to converting to Judaism in Latin America. Last year over 300 Colombians officially finished their Orthodox Jewish conversion after 1 year to 5 years of studying about faith, the laws and the Hebrew language.

In the Footsteps of the Hermit - Larry Torres
 
01:04:21
http://elhermitano.nmsu.edu/ The Hermit of La Cueva was a 19th-century mystic and healer who spent his final days in a cave at the base of the Organ Mountains, near what is now called Dripping Springs. Born in Italy as Giovanni María Agostini-Justiniani, he studied for the priesthood but stopped short of taking his vows. After leaving Europe, he spent much of his life wandering South and North America dispensing religious visions and herbal healing. In Las Vegas, NM, where he lived for some time, local Penitente brothers calling themselves La Sociedad del Ermitaño still revere him by making rosaries out of native plants at Easter. His gravestone in Mesilla reads, John Mary Justiniani, Hermit of the Old and New World. He died the 17th of April, 1869, at 69 years and 49 years a hermit. Larry Torres, associate professor of foreign languages at UNM Taos, plays the role of the Hermit in these imagined scenes from the Hermits wanderings in New Mexico. ©2006. NMSU Board of Regents.

Jewish family of Sephardic descent hopeful new measures will speed up naturalisation
 
03:59
They were burned at the stake, forced to convert or chased into exile. Now Spain is moving to right a half-millennium old "mistake" against its one-time flourishing Sephardic Jewish community. The European country is on the verge of offering citizenship to descendants of victims estimated to number in the (m) millions. The Spanish conservative government plans to make amends with a law expected to be passed within weeks or months in Parliament that offers citizenship to the descendants of legions of Jews forced to flee in 1492. Sephardic Jew Silka Erez celebrates with her family in Madrid the beginning of the sabbath. Erez, 65 years old, has an Israeli passport but has lived in Spain for 10 years. She is profoundly in love with Spain and - thanks to an offer by the Spanish government - will be able to claim dual nationality. "I am here for my love of Spain," said Erez. "If you imagine you have two hearts, I have one that is in Israel - where my children were born, where my family is, but I feel so much towards Spain," she said. The term "Sephardic" literally means "Spanish" in Hebrew, but the label has come also to apply to one of the two main variants of Jewish religious practice. The other - and globally dominant one - being "Ashkenazic," which applies to Jews whose lineage, in recent times, is traced to northern and eastern Europe. Because of mixing between the groups and other factors, there is no accepted figure for the global Sephardic population, but reasonable estimates would range between a fifth and a third of the world's roughly 13 (m) million Jews. Hundreds of thousands live in France and already have European Union passports. But the largest community is in Israel, where almost half of the 6 (m) million Jews are considered Sephardic. Spanish Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz-Gallardon has his own personal link to the issue. His great-grandfather Jose Rojas Moreno was the Spanish ambassador to Romania during World War II and is credited with helping to prevent deportations of Jews to concentration camps. His actions helped evacuate 65 Jews to Spain and he also gave protection to the goods and estates of 200 other Jews, according to the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation, which conducts Holocaust research. Ruiz-Gallardon describes the Jewish Expulsion Edict as "one of the biggest mistakes that Spaniards made in history." "We had to find a mechanism to repair that one failed meeting, that one break up, that one point of anguish, that was the expulsion of so many Spaniards by other Spaniards," he said. It is not completely clear how much of a historical link Spain will require for applicants to qualify for a Spanish passport. Most of Israel's Sephardics hail from northern Africa and southern Europe, which were early ports of call after the expulsion from Spain, and so they may be able to easily show direct links. "Then there are other circumstances that can be evaluated by the register (of Sephardic Jews) or the consulates in the respective countries. For example, the person's involvement in Spanish communities or social groups, or if the person knows about Spanish culture," said lawyer Ricardo de la Serna. Applicants will have to provide details of their birth and family name or prove knowledge of Ladino, the Judeo-Spanish language considered to be the "Yiddish" of Sephardic Jews. "Many Sephardic Jews still talk Judeo-Spanish, the Judeo-Spanish that they spoke when they were expelled from Spain in 1492, or one of the dialects that were spoken then, for example Haketia, of the Jews with a Moroccan origin," said de la Serna. Other communities, from places like Iraq and Yemen, are considered Sephardic by religious practice yet may have trouble proving a connection to Spain.

The area now known as the Netherlands was once part of the Spanish Empire but in 1581, the northern Dutch provinces declared independence. A principal motive was a wish to practice Protestant Christianity, then forbidden under Spanish rule, and so religious tolerance was effectively an important constitutional element of the newly independent state. This inevitably attracted the attention of Jews who were religiously oppressed in many parts of the world.

Rabbi Brill will explore the question of how the two religions think differently about theology. He will seek to steer the discussion beyond attempting to create sameness or difference and will outline the changes on both sides from perceiving differences between the faiths to perceiving commonality. But then ask: how much are these new theologies still operating on Christian terms? Rabbi Brill will answer with how Jewish theology would respond to these terms.

"The Jews of Spain"), originally from Sepharad, Spain or the Iberian peninsula, are a Jewish ethnic division. They established communities throughout areas of modern Spain and Portugal, where they traditionally resided, evolving what would become their distinctive characteristics and diasporic identity, which they took with them in their exile from Iberia beginning in the late 15th century to North Africa, Anatolia, the Levant, Southeastern and Southern Europe, as well as the Americas, and all other places of their exiled settlement, either alongside pre-existing co-religionists, or alone as the first Jews in new frontiers. Their millennial residence as an open and organised Jewish community in Iberia began to decline with the Reconquista and was brought to an end starting with the Alhambra Decree by Spain's Catholic Monarchs in 1492, and then by the edict of expulsion of Jews and Muslims by Portuguese king Manuel I in 1496, which resulted in a combination of internal and external migrations, mass conversions and executions. More broadly, the term Sephardim has today also come sometimes to refer to traditionally Eastern Jewish communities of West Asia and beyond who, although not having genealogical roots in the Jewish communities of Iberia, have adopted a Sephardic style of liturgy and Sephardic law and customs imparted to them by the Iberian Jewish exiles over the course of the last few centuries. This article deals with Sephardim within the narrower ethnic definition. Historically, the vernacular languages of Sephardim and their descendants have been variants of either Spanish or Portuguese, though other tongues had been adopted and adapted throughout their history. The historical forms of Spanish or Portuguese that differing Sephardic communities spoke communally was determined by the date of their departure from Iberia, and their condition of departure as Jews or New Christians. Judaeo-Spanish, sometimes called "Ladino Oriental" (Eastern Ladino), was a Romance language derived from Old Spanish, incorporating elements from all the old Romance languages of the Iberian Peninsula, Hebrew and Aramaic, and was spoken by what became the Eastern Sephardim, who settled in the Eastern Mediterranean, taken with them in the 15th century after the expulsion from Spain in 1492. This dialect was further influenced by Ottoman Turkish, Levantine Arabic, Greek, Bulgarian and Serbo-Croatian vocabulary in the differing lands of their exile. Haketia (also known as "Tetouani" in Algeria), an Arabic-influenced Judaeo-Spanish variety also derived from Old Spanish, with numerous Hebrew and Aramaic terms was spoken by North African Sephardim, taken with them in the 15th century after the expulsion from Spain in 1492. The main feature of this dialect is the heavy influence of the Jebli Arabic dialect of northern Morocco. Early Modern Spanish and Early Modern Portuguese, including in a mixture of the two was traditionally spoken or used liturgically by the ex-converso Western Sephardim, taken with them during their later migration out of Iberia between the 16th and 18th centuries as conversos, after which they reverted to Judaism. Modern Spanish and Modern Portuguese varieties, traditionally spoken by the Sephardic Bnei Anusim of Iberia and Ibero-America, including some recent returnees to Judaism in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. In this latter case, these varieties have incorporated loanwords from the indigenous languages of the Americas introduced following the Spanish conquest.

Sephardic Bnei Anusim | Wikipedia audio article

"Children [of the] coerced [converted] Spanish [Jews]) is a modern term used to define the contemporary Christian descendants of estimated quarter of a million 15th-century Sephardic Jewish which were coerced or forced to convert to Catholicism during the 14th and 15th century in Spain. The vast majority of Conversos remained in Spain and Portugal, their descendants in both these countries numbering in the millions. The small minority of Conversos who did emigrate normally chose destinations where Sephardic communities already existed, particularly in the Ottoman Empire and North Africa, but also more tolerant cities in Europe, immediately reverting to Judaism. Although a few did their travel to Spanish America, doing so was particularly difficult since only those Spaniards who could certify no recent Muslim or Jewish ancestry were allowed to travel to the New World. Nevertheless, the constant flow of Spanish emigration to Latin America up until well into the 20th century has resulted to many Latin Americans having Converso ancestry, in the same way as modern Spaniards do. The Bnei Anusim concept has gained some popularity among the Hispanic Community in the American South West and in countries in Latin America, whereby hundreds of Hispanics have expressed a belief that they are descendants of such Conversos and a desire to return to the fold of Judaism. Such desire may perhaps be understood within the complex identity politics of both Latin and Anglo-America and their interplay with social mobility. Belief in Converso identity is normally based on memories of family practices which may resemble their perceptions of Jewish customs and religion and internet genealogical research and public availability of population genetics and atDNA analysis.In the last 5 to 10 years a growing number "of [Sephardic] Benei Anusim have been established in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and in Sefarad [Iberia] itself" as "organized groups." Some members of these communities have formally reverted to Judaism, operating as functional communities of public Judaizers. For more information on these groups, please see Neo-Western Sephardim. Although, reversion to Judaism among these communities is largely a question of individual belief and interest and any knowledge of Jewish ancestry has been long lost over the past four centuries, two specific exceptions exist: The Xueta community of the island of Majorca in Spain and the Marrano community of Belmonte in Portugal. Both communities have practiced endogamy over generations, thus maintaining awareness of their Jewish heritage. In the case of the Xuetas, they also suffered social stigma and discrimination well into the 20th century for their converso origin. The Jewish Agency for Israel estimates the Sephardic Bnei Anusim population to number in the millions. Although they are the least prominent of Sephardic descendants, Sephardic Bnei Anusim are nonetheless numerically superior to their Jewish-integrated Sephardic Jewish counterparts, which consist of Eastern Sephardim, North African Sephardim, and the ex-converso Western Sephardim. With up to 20% of Spain and Portugal's population and at least 10% of Latin America's Iberian-descended population estimated to have at least some Sephardic Jewish ancestry (90% of Latin America's modern population being persons of at least partial Iberian ancestry, in the form of criollos, mestizos, and mulattos), the total population size of Sephardic Bnei Anusim (67.78 million) is not only several times larger than the combined population of Jewish-integrated Sephardic sub-groups, but also more than four times the size of the total world Jewish population as a whole, which itself also encompasses Ashkenazi Jews, Mizrahi Jews and various other smaller groups.
