Location: Youth Lounge

We will hear the story of a 1000-year-old community that created a lasting legacy to civilization in the Arts and Philosophy. It includes a glimpse of Jewish life under Islamic and Christian rule focusing on the poetry, music and architecture of the times. A look at the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition and the agony of the Jewish exile in 1492. We will view the journeys of these creative and tortured people, as they remained hidden in both the Old World and the New World. Charlene Neely, who is descended from one of these families, will present this as a personal look at the Hidden Jews of New Mexico.
