Bnei Anousim to Pray with Portuguese Jews

A Shabbat service run by descendants of Jews forcibly converted to Christianity will be held next week in Portugal’s main shul. Organized by the Jerusalem-based Shavei Israel organization, the Kabbalat Shabbat service will gather descendants of the converted Jews, known as Bnei Anusim, and Portuguese Jews at the Lisbon Synagogue. According to Michael Freund, Shavei Israel’s chairman, a seminar for Bnei Anusim is expected to be held next April in Oporto, Portugal’s second largest city.
