Children of the Inquisition: Online Screening Oct. 22-24, 2020

Children of the Inquisition is documentary film that unearths 500 years of hidden history. The film looks at what happened to the families forced to convert to Catholicism or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions through the eyes of their contemporary descendants, many of whom are just discovering their often nuanced Jewish roots.  Its storytellers uncover the connections between their family’s journeys and this buried history.  The discoveries of these flights to safety over the past 500 years give a new perspective to the world events we face today.

Online screening: Thurs, Oct 22, 2020  (5 pm MT)- Sat, Oct. 24, 2020 (5 pm MT). After registration, you can watch the film any time during this 48 hour period.

Live Q&A session with producer Joseph Lovett will take place on Zoom at 6 pm MT Sat, Oct. 24, 2020. Joining him will be Carlos de Medeiros, a contemporary descendant featured in the film, and Corinne Brown, Vice President of Communications at Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies and Editor of their journal, HaLapid.

Registration: $10 per attendee

A growing community within Colorado and surrounding states is actively campaigning to preserve the historic Temple Aaron of Trinidad, Colorado. The Temple Aaron campaign has met its initial goal to fund critical repairs, two-year operating expenses, and commission of a historic building assessment. A capital campaign will follow to secure an endowment for preservation in perpetuity. This success has been made possible by local temple leadership and congregation members, individuals and organizations throughout CO and NM, historic preservation societies, and others who are committed to preserving this unique and special landmark.
