THE STORY. AT A GLANCE.

Spain is an intoxicating blend of sunny coasts, joyful flamenco dancers, and succulent tapas. The country is also so rich in history and culture that you can’t cross the street without coming across something extraordinary – from the Prado museum in Madrid, one of the greatest art museums in the world, to Gaudi’s architectural wonders in Barcelona, to Alhambra Palace in Andalusia, famed for its beauty and historic significance. In short – there’s something for everyone.

INSIDE OUT. JEWISH SPAIN.

A trip to Spain will take us back in time to one of the greatest periods of Jewish history, the Spain of the Golden Age, which produced an abundance of Jewish poets, philosophers, kabbalists, and intellectual giants, such as Maimonides and Judah HaLevi. The Golden Age came to a brutal and horrific end in 1478 with the Spanish Inquisition, which forced hundreds of thousands of Jews to either convert to Christianity – or die. Our journey will follow the story of the Jews of Spain, those who were expelled, those who stayed behind in secret, hiding (Marranos), and those who live here today.
