Who are the Crypto-Jews and Conversos? Why are they in Mexico? This presentation traces the history of Jews in Inquisitional Spain, including how Crypto-Jews kept their secrets in very dangerous times. We will look at the forces that brought them to the New World and, in particular, the American Southwest. Then we will look at contemporary Crypto-Jews and Conversors living in New Mexico: How they live now, why some still keep the secret, and what happens to those who want to return to mainstream Jewish life. Presented by Norma Libman through the Historical Society of New Mexico.

Registration has closed.
