Jeffrey Gorsky: Exiles in Sepharad: The Jewish Millennium in Spain
Friday, March 31, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. during services

Commemorate the 525th anniversary of the 1492 Spanish Expulsion of the Jews with this fascinating talk during Sabbath services. We are honored to welcome author Jeff Gorsky to talk about his book: Exiles in Sepharad, a dramatic history of Sephardic Jews who flourished in Europe for a thousand years under Christian and Muslim rulers until they met their unfortunate fate at the end of the fifteenth century.

Jeffrey Gorsky, a nationally recognized expert in immigration law, currently works for a law firm that specializes in immigration. Formerly, he held positions in the U.S. government as a diplomat, a vice-consul and an intelligence analyst.
