Hidden Heritage of New Mexico: Then & Now - The 400 Year Old Secret
 
58:55
For many generations New Mexico has been a place for the descendants of the secret Jews of Spain who were persecuted by the Inquisition after the expulsion of the Jews in 1492. Today they are known as Crypto-Jews or the Anusim. Despite destructions and attempted annihilations in Israel, Jews multiplied and prospered in Sephard/Spain as they ushered in the Golden Age of "revival" in all aspects of life during the Middle Ages. However, in the midst of major breakthroughs, the Spanish inquisition's 300 year-long holocaust expelled them from the land their forefathers had founded thousands of years earlier. Consequently, many Crypto Jews fled across the Atlantic into America. Crypto Anusim Conquistadores, soldiers and explorers came to the new world. In 1598 Dan Juan Onate lead a group of fellow Crypto Jews into New Mexico where their descendants have lived in virtual hiding for hundreds of years. Today, we have evidence in the social sciences as well as in genetic DNA testing.

Episode 738 | Crypto-Jews in New Mexico
 
22:11
This week we present a companion piece to the national program "The Story of the Jews," which airs beginning March 25th. NMiF Producer Megan Kamerick focuses on the experience of conversos or "crypto-Jews" in New Mexico. In 1492, the Edict of Expulsion launched the diaspora of Sephardic Jews from Spain. Many found their way to the New World, including New Mexico, although they could not openly practice their religion. Dr. Frances Levine, director of the New Mexico History Museum, and historian Roger Martínez-Dávila flesh out the history of these people and their role in New Mexico heritage and identity. Sonya Loya, an artisan and educator who has recovered her family's secret Jewish past, discusses her personal journey and conversion to Judaism.

Restoring the Lost Heritage Part 1 of 2
 
14:32
First International Conference on the B'nei Anussim The World gets shocked from the abuse of children and the trade in human beings to poverty. However there are only a few issues of social and religious injustice that have lasted for hundreds of years and yet only a few in the world are aware of this injustice. This long lasting injustice that started in the 15th century and has still not made right is a deep stain on the history of religion for mankind. In Portugal there are still Jewish people who live a double life, as Christians in the open and as Jews in secret. Many of these people want to reclaim their identity as Jews but they don't want to be forced to convert to Judaism because they are Jews by blood and by choice of life-style, all-being in secret. The city of Castelo de Vide is one of places where the Jews from Spain crossed to Portugal to escape the persecution of the Spanish Inquisition. This city is again opening it's doors to help and welcome the Jewish people and to help bring to the world understanding the suffering of these Anussim / Marrano Jews and their desire to return to their Jewish Identity and relationship to the Jewish Community and Israel. The City of Castelo de Vide with Netivyah in Israel and with ABRAJIN in Brazil is conniving a special conference of international scholars to raise the awareness and issues of the Anussim to the world. This conference is for scholars and for every one who loves Israel and the Jewish people and believes in the Restoration of both Israel and the church. Historical problems will not be resolved alone. Everything that was done in the darkness has to be brought to the light before the deep infection and pain that was inflicted under the shadow of the Cross to the very nation that gave the world the Bible is resolved and justice is seen. In this conference first class leaders in the battle for the Anussim from around the world will present the historical data and stories of the survival of the Anussim in Portugal and Brazil. Both Christian and Jewish leaders with social sensitivity will make a clear call to the Jewish Community and to the State of Israel to open the doors and show hospitality to these hidden Jews of Portugal. Leaders from as far as Japan and Korea, United States, Germany, Finland, and Israel will be participating in this conference and showing their stand with the Jewish people and the State of Israel and calling for justice and repentance and reconciliation with these millions of people who still hold their true identity in secret. The deep fear built into the souls of the Anussim by the Inquisition and what was called "The Holy Office" of the Catholic Church has to be lifted up and both Jews and Christians have to actually do this act.

Secret Pirates of 1492~The Portuguese Jews Hidden History
 
17:26
Over five centuries after Christopher Columbus's death, we take a fresh look at what motivated the famed explorer to make his voyage across the Atlantic. Jamaica, the luscious Caribbean island that was then the home to descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jews who converted to Roman Catholicism and sought a safe haven from the inquisition. Many of the signs of heresy and deemed as witchcraft found in the Inquisition can be related to pagan traditions, and rituals concerning an ancient alchemical relationship to nature. That said, in Roman Catholic countries, the courts insisted on burning witches. In Protestant lands, they were mainly hung. The Basque people are one of the most ancient races living in Europe, having among the highest percentage of population with Rh- negative blood type in the world.

For many Jews fleeing the Nazis, Portugal was a way station on the route to a new life and freedom. The few who remained there often did so out of desperation - because they had no visa, or no money to pay for a sea crossing. We pay a visit to the family of Ruth Arons, who fled Berlin in 1936 and went on to join the battle against dictatorship in Portugal.

Identity Purge: The Search for the Jew in Jesus in Renaissance Art
 
56:20
Renaissance art purged Jesus' Jewish identity. Nowhere in Renaissance art depictions do we see the dedicated Jew of the Gospels. Instead, we are presented with a Renaissance era Christian with no connection to Judaism or his roots in a rural Jewish community in first century Galilee. This video will take you on a grand tour of art history that will forever change your understanding and appreciation of Renaissance art. You will also learn about a new art exhibit that "puts Judaism back in the picture." In the spirit of reconciliation and the healing of ancient wounds, the exhibit presents artworks that express the two sides of the Jesus story: Jesus the dedicated Jew and Jesus whose life and teachings inspired a new religion.
