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.

Holland

There has been a consistent and vibrant Jewish presence in the Netherlands since Jews settled there after being expulsed from Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th century. Tragically, this community was decimated during the Holocaust. Between the Spanish exile and the Holocaust, however, Dutch Jews contributed to one of the most prosperous and enlightened eras in the history of the Netherlands and Europe, producing such figures as the notable 17th century philosopher Baruch Spinoza, whose work continues to exert an effect on ethics, politics and philosophy well into the 21st century.

Series of three lectures:

May 11 – Spain
May 18- Holland
May 25 – England
