Hoping for a better life for him, a Christian mother smuggles her son onto an Israeli rescue plane, saying, “Go, live, and become.” “A powerful recounting of the humanitarian work that Israel has done for decades.

  7. MARRANOS: THE CRYPTO-JEWISH EXPERIENCE IN CHRISTENDOM

    Lectures & Book Talks
    After pogroms swept across Spain in 1391 and the expulsion decree in 1492, thousands of Spanish Jews were forced to convert. Although publicly professing their devotion to Catholicism, a large number practiced Judaism in hiding. The Conversos, also known as Marranos, were one of multiple Jewish communities continuing to practice their religion in secret. Ken Blady, author of "Jewish Communities in Exotic Places," will explore the hidden Jewish communities from Spain as well as communities in Istanbul, Central Asia, Iran and the Sahara.

  10. POSTPONED: AUTHOR EVENT & BOOK SIGNING: “A LIFE WELL LIVED”

    Lectures & Book Talks
    Due to unforeseen circumstanced, this event has been postponed and will be rescheduled. In this uplifting memoir, Ernie Glaser takes the reader from his being a teenager making a last minute escape from Nazi Germany to Shanghai (where he lived in a ghetto under Japanese rule) and finally to his “Horatio Alger” story in the United States. Glaser’s personal odyssey is as relevant today as it was in the 1930’s when his family crossed half of the globe-seeking asylum.
