History of the Jewish People

 Email
In the middle of the 12th Century, fanatical Almohad Muslims overran Southern Spain, causing a massive Jewish exodus to the Christian North. At first, the Christians proved to be as tolerant to Jews as were the Muslim rulers of the Golden Age. However, in the 13th Century matters began to deteriorate.
The Spanish Expulsion marks the approximate beginning of the age of the Acharonim, or later Torah scholars.
