This captivating story—explored in the New-York Historical Society’s past exhibition The First Jewish Americans: Freedom and Culture in the New World—is now available as a virtual presentation. Images featured in this presentation include archival documents, maps, ritual objects, rare portraits, and the 16th-century diary—lost for 80 years—of a Mexican Jewish man persecuted for his faith.
