The Anousim List Page

The ANUSIM list is for those who know/think/suspect or are interested in Spanish or Portuguese Jewish peoples that were forced to convert under duress and kept Jewish practices, in secret, to any extent. Although the list will mainly focus on feelings, thoughts, and learning about Jewish practices by those descendants, scholars and those interested in the subject of crypto-judaism are welcome as long as they respect those who wish for anonimity. All branches of Judaism can be discussed. Persons wishing to learn more about messianics (Jews for Jesus) can find it on other places. Since a lot of participants will come with very little or no knowledge of Judaism, questions of all levels are welcome.

Participants will not be urged to convert to Judaism if that is not their wish.

Those seeking only to learn about their ancestors and how they lived are also welcome.

Abuse, prozeletizing and 'My version of religion X is better than yours' will not be tolerated.
