Item Description:

The re-establishment of Sephardic communities after the expulsion from Spain is testimony to the Jewish will to survive. Rabbi Wein traces the revival of Jewish life in Italy, Turkey, North Africa, Amsterdam, and the Land of Israel. Spiritually and economically, the Jews rebuilt themselves and even prospered. But the greatest challenge of all was for the faithful Jews to accept the Marranos, for Jews who gave up everything for Torah to help the converts to return.

• the Marrano influence on Jewish architecture & music
• Rabbi Eliyahu Mizrachi and the Turkish-Jewish community
• the rebirth of Jewish life in Safed
• the Chacham Tzvi, an Ashkenazic rabbi amongst Sephardim
• how the Jews turned Holland into a world power
