The Secret Jews Of Calabria

Join us as producer Carl Perkal, takes you on the incredible journey of the little know history of the Jews of southern Italy. This story begins at the time of the Macabees, continues through the horrors of The Inquisition, and arrives at the modern day when Calabrians began to discover and embrace their Jewish roots. When an American rabbi of Italian descent, Barbara Aiello, returns to her ancestral village in Calabria to encourage the locals to discover their Jewish heritage, not everyone (Jews and Christians) welcomes her.
Rabbi Barbara takes you on this challenging journey through the "toe" of the Italian "boot," as she shares the joys and struggles of the "bnei anusim," - Italians whose families were forced into Christian conversion centuries ago. Obscure alley ways, secret rooms and hidden traditions come to life as locals share family stories of Jewish traditions that for centuries were hiding in plain sight. "I'm Italian but could I be Jewish too?" Rabbi Barbara's journey courageously answers that question that has mystified southern Italians for centuries and offers a glimpse into a piece of Jewish history that has only recently come to light.
The Italian Jewish Cultural Center of Calabria (IjCCC) is an international organization based in Calabria, the southernmost region of Italy. Founded by Rabbi Barbara Aiello, whose Jewish ancestry includes B'nai Anusim (Italians whose ancestors were forced into adult baptism and Christian conversion during Inquisition times), is the founding director of the IjCCC, an organization dedicated to help those with Italian heritage determine if their family surnames indicate Italian Jewish roots. Although the IjCCC does not establish a blood line, our staff initiates a search of Italian family surnames to determine a Jewish connection.
Staff combs through ancient Inquisition records, searching for matches between family surnames and Jewish religious persecution. For example, in Rabbi Barbara's family's the surname "GRANDE" is prominent. Research determined that families named GRANDE, coming from the same towns and villages as Rabbi Aiello's family members, were arrested and tortured for "judaizing," practicing Judaism in secret.
We know that during World War II, Nazis kept meticulous records of the Jews they arrested and murdered. Five hundred years earlier, officials of the Inquisition did the same thing. Church officials listed individuals suspected of being Jewish and often described in detail the nature of the "crime," (such as lighting Shabbat candles or keeping kosher dietary laws) and the penalty imposed (flogging, torture, and often public burning).
Historians have determined that nearly 50 percent of the population of Sicily and southern Italy has Italian Jewish roots and was once Jewish. For clients who contract with the IjCCC, our staff works to determine a Jewish surname connection and if this connection is found, detailed information is shared with the family via a detailed research report.
