Rabbi Sussman – Hola! Coming to America: The Sephardic Experience, 1492 to Today, November 14 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Lance J. Sussman, Ph.D. has been Senior Rabbi of Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park, PA since 2001. Rabbi Sussman will be retiring from the pulpit in June, 2022 and looks forward to spending more time in his family’s home in Brigantine, NJ. Sussman is a former Chair of the Board of Gratz College and has taught Jewish History at Princeton University.

For his November program Rabbi Sussman will be sharing a PowerPoint on the history of how Sephardic Jews first came to the New World beginning in 1492. We will look at the expulsions from Iberia and then discuss the role Holland played in the settlement of Jews in the world including South America, the Caribbean and New Amsterdam. Initially the Sephardic experience was dominant among New World Jews but then receded with Ashkenazi immigration. Today Sephardi Judaism is reasserting itself in the New World.

Review of “One Step to Freedom”

In 1938, Austria had been annexed by Nazi Germany and Switzerland closed its borders for Jewish refugees, essentially forming as a death sentence for thousands. However, not all Swiss officials subscribed to this inhuman order. ‘One Step to Freedom’ centers on the story of Paul Grüninger, the St. Gallen police commander who put not only his career, but also his life on the line by disregarding orders and allowing all Jews to enter the country, most of them under the cover of night and in danger of being shot by Austrian border guards.
