These past several months have been challenging for everyone in ways we could never have imagined. Through it all, we have never stopped working and are now making the final plans for the aliyah of 250 Bnei Menashe! www.shavei.org

As part of the expanded Shavei Israel online programming to provide services for our communities throughout the world, we've been holding a wonderful Zoom series in Spanish. In the following excerpt, hear from Federico Pipman, who made aliyah from Argentina 11 years ago, as he tells his inspiring Aliyah story. [With English subtitles] www.shavei.org


Coronavirus:

In this time of deep crisis, numerous Bnei Menashe immigrants to Israel are suffering due to actual Covid-19 illness, family members in quarantine, and a desperate inability to make ends meet.

In this challenging time, let's help the most vulnerable among us.

The incredible story of the synagogue in Covilhã, Portugal (Shaarei Kabbalah)


Every time I research or study about Jewish Portugal, I’m impressed that I always find a new surprise. A new discovery! There are many mysteries and secrets yet to be uncovered. I ask myself: Why do we know so little about the Jews of Portugal? Why was the history of the Jews of Portugal forgotten in the Jewish history books?
I want to tell you the incredible story about a lay community in Covilhã, in the region of Beira Interior, at the foot of the Serra de Estrela in Portugal. The name Covilhã points to an origin connected to the production of wool in remote times of the city’s history.

We know that a Jewish community in Covilhã has existed since the 12th century and up until the prohibition of Judaism in Portugal. In the 15th century, it was considered the biggest and most important community in the Beira Interior region. It was actually considered one of the largest and strongest communities in the country—not only because of its contributions to the development of Portugal’s economy and science field but also because of the number of distinguished names that left a mark on the country’s history.

Examples of Covilhanese Jews linked to the epic of the Portuguese Discoveries and its maritime expansion: Mestre José Vizinho, Cosmographer of D. João II; Rui Faleiro, creator of the circumnavigation trip of Hernando de Magallanes; Francisco Faleiro, great cosmographer at the service of Spain, author of the Treatise on the sphere and on the art of navigation; Pêro da Covilhã, explorer and preparer of the sea route to India, as well as the famous João Ramalho, the first pioneer in Brazil.
