‘TIME TO REACH OUT TO THE CONVERSOS’

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

A CON­FER­ENCE at the Knes­set last week called for Is­rael and the Jewish world to re­con­nect with the de­scen­dants of Span­ish and Por­tuguese Jewish com­mu­ni­ties (known as Bnei Anusim, Mar­ra­nos and Conversos) around the world. MK Robert Ila­tov said: “Many of them are in­ter­ested in ex­plor­ing their Jewish roots … Our role is to as­sist them in this task. It is a moral im­per­a­tive.”
