LIMUD WEEKEND EXPERIENCE
What does this experience include?
This year Limud Mallorca is offering a one of a kind weekend experience before our Limud kicks off on Saturday night the 11th of May.
During the weekend we’ll be focusing on the Xuetes’ (Local Conversós) experience, and life as Jews in Mallorca, before, during and after the Spanish Inquisition. We’ll be learning about this very unique community from the eyes of Xuetes themselves, this will include a talk and Q&A with local Xuetes, who will recount the history of their community and their very own experiences with the Anti-Xuete culture on the island. We will also learn about the influence of Jewish foods on the local cuisine from a famous Mallorquín chef.
On Friday morning May 10 we’ll be visiting the Pueblo Español museum, where we’ll get to explore the different cities of Spain and the Jewish history in them, as well as learn about Columbus’ origins (was he a secret Jew?).
On Friday night there will be a musical Kabbalat Shabbat (before sundown) and Kiddush, however if you would like to join a more traditional service, then you can choose to go to the local synagogue, which also has a Kiddush.
On Shabbat we’ll be going on the secret Jews of Mallorca Tour, taking us through the lives of the secret Jews in the city of Palma, including a walk through the Jewish quarter and a visit to a small local Jewish history museum.
This tour takes place in the centre of Palma and does not require the breaking of Shabbat.
