May 4, 2014 program meeting
Art Benveniste: Crypto-Jews and Growing Up Sephardic in Los Angeles
(doors open at

The presentation will cover the history, discovery, culture and current practices of Crypto-Jews (aka conversos, marranos and anusim). Art will also talk of the experience being Sephardic amid the majority Ashkenazic American culture. There will be plenty of time for your questions as well.
Please remember that there will be time at the meeting to tell us your good genealogy research news and to ask others for assistance with your own research. Please come early if you would like help from other genealogists or to help set up for the program.
Cost: The program is free to 2014 JGSO members. You will be able to renew your membership at the meeting. We request a $5 contribution from non-members. That fee can be applied to a membership should you decide to join JGSO at this meeting.
