The Inquisition forced many Spanish and Portuguese Jews to become Catholics. But now, centuries later, many are returning to Judaism. FIU professor Abe Lavender will examine the reasons for this return to Jewry, as well as the issues they face and the hopes they hold.
On December 8, Dr. Galit Shashoua gave a wonderful lecture on Messianic Zionism and the Lost Tribes: The Case of the Bnei Menashe.
