Growth and Flourishing of Jewry and the Expulsion
May 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
A new series with Trudy Gold 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.
There were individual Jews living in England in Roman and Anglo-Saxon times (80-1066 A.D.), but not an organized community. When William the Conqueror arrived in England in 1066, he encouraged Jewish merchants and artisans from northern France to move to England. The Jews came mostly from France with some from Germany, Italy and Spain, seeking prosperity and a haven from anti-Semitism.
