Growth and Flourishing of Jewry and the Expulsion
June 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Trudy Gold continues telling the stories of “the Wandering Jews” as they journeyed from country to country.
The exhilarating story of a people’s survival exiled from their homeland by the Romans and their survival as a group in the Diaspora in spite of constant expulsion.
During the Classical Ottoman period, the Jews, together with most other communities of the empire, enjoyed a certain level of prosperity. Compared with other Ottoman subjects, they were the predominant power in commerce and trade as well as diplomacy and other high offices.
