Adult Ed: Jewish Portugal

Sunday, February 25, 2024 16 Adar I 5784

1:00 PM - 2:00 PMVirtual

The Jewish heritage of Lisbon started in Roman times (if not before). This visit will allow you to understand the living Jewish community in Lisbon and learn about their history, their traditions and their everyday life. We will see the Sharee Tikva synagogue and refer to the massacre of Passover of 1506, for which a memorial was built by Jews and Catholics to express the reconciliation between religions. We will also walk virtually through Lisbon's historic downtown, where two of the Jewish quarters used to be located. The Alfama, the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon still preserves the 8th century layout, and here, Jews, Christians and Muslims used to live and work side by side.
