Join us for a special online showing of the film “Children of the Inquisition” (watch beforehand on your own time) and a Zoom Q&A with the film’s director, Joseph Lovett; Rabbi Or Rose, director of Hebrew College’s Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership; Rabbi Allison Poirier of Temple Beth Sholom in Framingham, and additional esteemed guests to be announced!
The film will be available to registrants to view at your leisure for 48 hours before the Zoom discussion with our guests.
“Children of the Inquisition” is a re-examination of history and identity in a two-hour documentary film that unearths 500 years of hidden history. The film looks at what happened to the families forced to convert to Catholicism or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions through the eyes of their contemporary descendants, many of whom are just discovering their often-nuanced Jewish roots. The film’s storytellers uncover the connections between their family’s journeys and this buried history. The discoveries of these flights to safety over the past 500 years give a new perspective to the world events we face today. “Children of the Inquisition” is more than just a film; it’s an opportunity to better understand our complex world and identities.
This event is made possible thanks to a generous, anonymous donor, and is co-sponsored by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston and Temple Beth Sholom in Framingham.+ More... - Less...
