ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Join Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn—founder of Brit Brajá, the first virtual synagogue in the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world—for an exploration of the state of Jewish life in Latin America.

The rabbi discusses the over thirty million Latin American “Crypto-Jews” who, despite being forced to convert to Christianity, have retained some Jewish practices.

A Q&A follows the program.
