The Jewish History of Madeira and the Azores by world traveler and Jewish Historian Irene Shaland

Irene will also discuss the unsolved mystery of the ancient Sephardic Torah with an Ashkenazi cover. First given by a local man to an American Jewish officer serving on the US Army base on Terceira Island of the Azores, the Torah reappeared forty years later on Sao Miguel Island inside a sea cave.
We will also be treated to a visual tour of Madeira and Azores as she delves deeper into the archipelagos’ hidden Jewish history.

Registration begins April 19th.
