Symposium speakers will include Center Director Dr. Peter Tarlow presenting “Insights into Crypto-Jewish Communities: The Texas and Latin American Experience.” Houston Attorney Jacob Monty presenting “The importance of Hispanic – Jewish Relations from the Perspective of a Successful Hispanic professional.” The center is honored to have the presence of special guests Bishop Daniel Flores, and Consul General of Israel Ambassador Meir Shlomo and Rabbi Kogan.

Many of the symposium’s goals come directly from the inspiration of Pope Francis who is working tirelessly not only to heal past wounds, but as the first Hispanic Pope to bring people from the Hispanic and Jewish Communities together. It is important to learn about our genealogical ties, but it is even more important to help each other in the present. Plan to attend this important event.
