Time: 30-40 minutes
Format: Four page instant lesson

If available use the pull-down below to see other materials
that are bought along with this item.

A central figure in expulsion-era Spain, Dona Gracia hid her Jewishness and lived as an influential member of Spanish society. After a betrayal, she left Spain for Istanbul and set up an "underground railroad" for Jews fleeing Catholic persecution. This lesson delves into the Spanish Inquisition and uses primary sources—including the Edict of Expulsion—to expose students to this important moment in Jewish history.

12 copies of the student folder and a teacher's guide are included.
