Genie Milgrom, author of My 15 Grandmothers and How I Found My 15 Grandmothers and president of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies, was a featured speaker at the conference, “The Jewish People and the Anousim: The Challenge and the Hope” at the Yad Ben Zvi Institute in Jerusalem, which followed the 13 October Knesset conference for the Caucus for Reconnection with the Descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jewish Communities. Genie’s amazing personal story is an encouragement to all who want to discover their Sefardi roots.
