JTS Professor Benjamin Gampel returns to Bet Torah with a fascinating journey through Sephardic culture. Eight Sundays 10:00 am-12:30 pm beginning October 3, 2021.
Dr. Benjamin Gampel, professor of Jewish History at the Jewish Theological Seminary, will be joining us again this fall for another one of his fascinating journeys into Jewish history and practice.
Study of the Sephardic Jews of medieval Iberia – today’s Spain and Portugal, who have captured the imagination of American Jews. That these Jews fashioned a civilization within a multicultural pluralistic environment, that these Jews were at home and creative in their Judaism, even as they mixed freely in Christian and Muslim society, is a phenomenon that we wish to understand more profoundly.
