Twenty eight of us visited famous areas of general and Jewish interest. In terms of Jewish awareness, we visited a small square which had Hebrew names engraved on some of the stones in the wall. Presumably, this was once a Jewish cemetery in the Middle Ages. We paused and recited Kaddish there.
Around the corner, we stood where the Ramban, Nachmanides, was forced into a disputation with Christian theologians in the year These were part of an anti-Jewish agenda at the time. We stood in many areas which go back to the time of the Inqisition. Perhaps the most uplifting part of the afternoon was entering a small synagogue, one of five in the immediate area, from the medieval period.
Today it is a museum and is used occasionally for services and lifecycle occasions. We were given an explanation and enabled those who wished to daven Mincha there. It was in the synagogue when we learned that members of our shul, Bernie Schwartz and Riva Schwartz, became grandparents today to a granddaughter. It was a busy and meaningful first day coming right off the plane.
The Jewish highlight of our second day was the morning spent in Besalu. This was a major Jewish community in the 12thth centuries.\
There, on an actual synago gue floor, now outdoors facing nature, we davened the Rosh Chodesh morning service as a group. For 45 minutes of prayer, we brought a 13th century synagogue back to life. Our guide, Betsalel, revived a custom of sounding the shofar on this last day of Tishrei, one last time, linking the end of the month to how it began on Rosh Hashanah. We visited a medieval mikvah adjacent to the synagogue.
Annually, a Jewish cultural fair takes place in Besalu to keep the history of this Jewish community alive. During the afternoon, we saw highlights of Barcelona, including the famous Sagrada Familia. In the evening, we had dinner and met members of the local JCC. Our third day took us via the airport from Barcelona to Granada.
For centuries, there was vibrant Jewish life here. Some date the origins of Jews in Granada to the second Temple period.
Others date Jewish origins here to the first Temple period, though there is no supporting evidence. For centuries under Moslem rule, medieval Jewry was relatively comfortable in Granada. When Christian rule took over in earlythe situation changed dramatically for Jews and conversos. Today, we visited La Alhambra, the spatial palace of Ferdinand and Isabella. We learned how the wealthy rabbi Don Issac Abrabanel offered huge sums of money to refute the edict, but his efforts were not successful. Today, there are almost no Jews in Granada. The day following the expulsion edict, August 3,Columbus set sail for America.
Sephardic Jewry in Spain had been the largest concentration of Jews in one sector of the globe. Soon enough, American Jewry would be the single largest Jewish concentration in the world. In the Footsteps of the Spanish Inquisition. We will all sleep well tonight. October 29, The Jewish highlight of our second day was the morning spent in Besalu. Tomorrow, we fly early to Granada. It was another great day. October 30, Our third day took us via the airport from Barcelona to Granada.
