I am very excited to invite you to join “The Society for Crypto Judaic Studies”. SCJS was formed in 1991 and it is dedicated to fostering a supportive community that celebrates and explores the intersection of Crypto Judaism and academia.
SCJS aims to bring together individuals like yourself who are passionate about Crypto Jewish heritage, history, and culture. We believe that by connecting with fellow Crypto Jews and those interested in engaging in scholarly pursuits, we can deepen our understanding and appreciation of our shared heritage.
Through our academic fellowship, you will have an opportunity to experience your identity. To name just a few of the following opportunities, you will:
- Find a home for your identity and family story: SCJS offers a space for you to share your heritage, your unique story and identity which is “hidden no more”.
- Experience Intellectual Exchanges: Through our conferences and virtual gatherings we have expert presenters that enlighten us through thought-provoking discussions, lectures, and seminars. Although there is no obligation to our members, our members can present their research, share insights, and engage in critical dialogue on topics related to Crypto Judaism.
- Network and collaborate with your community: As a member you will have access to scholarly information, researchers, and experts in the field of Crypto Judaism who can offer guidance, mentorship, and opportunities for professional development.
- We keep in touch with our members keeping you informed through our publications. (https://cryptojews.com/about-scjs/). Through these publications you will have access to a wealth of resources, including academic journals, books, archives, and online databases, to support your personal research and enhance your understanding of Crypto Jewish history and culture.
