Posted November 19, 2014

The Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492. Most historians argue that close to 200,000 left Spain on the days surrounding July 31, 1492. This lecture will explore the reasons for the Expulsion given by the Jews in the generation following the Expulsion. Did they relay on the traditional explanation that tragedy is the result of sin? Did they praise martyrdom? Or, did they create their own brand of responses?
