Quote from an interview with Dr. Abraham Haim, president of the Council of the Sephardic Community in the City of Jerusalem, published on La Opinion de Zamora, on December 11, 2014.
¿Is there enough material to research about on the Jewish heritage of Zamora?
You bet; there is a lot to research about on the Jewish heritage of this city. Zamora is among the first Jewish communities in medieval Spain, although not the only one. The importance of this community, which had several synagogues, and a Talmudic School, can't be denied. Like in many other places, the expulsion of the Jews and the converso phenomenon erased most of the remaining traces of the Jewish presence, but I know that the City Council is working on recuperating this legacy. The history of the Jews is not unfamiliar to this city, it is integrated into the history of Zamora itself. It shouldn't be excluded despise Jews being a minority in medieval times.
