The Crusades and Midieval European Jewry Thank you Rabbi Dubov for your teachings. It was very interesting. Part of my Mom's ancestry were from Austria, Spain and Morocco. From my father's side I understand that they were from Spain and France. I hear the story and makes me very sad to know that many were either forced to convert or kill. Baruch Hashem! Reply
