The Ancona Affair of 1555-56 (Jews of Italy Pt. VI)

The remarkable story of two powerful Jewish women from Spain and Portugal and the challenge to Pope Paul IV for his maltreatment of Portuguese Jews in Italy.

Please join us Monday night in Brooklyn for the next installment of the The Jews of Italy! We plan to look at the life and work of Rabbi Ovadia of Bertinoro, an Italian Rabbi who revolutionized the study of the Mishnah and had a major impact on the life of Jews in 15th century Israel.

7:00 pm sharp at the mighty Avenue J campus of Touro College. Free and open to the community. No hard questions, please.
