Delve into the events leading up to the Alhambra Decree and what happened to the Jewish community in the wake of the edict in this panel discussion. On March 31, 1492, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain issued the Alhambra Decree, also known as the Edict of Expulsion, which gave Jews until the end of July to leave the country or convert to Catholicism. Some chose to convert and practice Judaism in secret, but many were forced to leave their homeland behind. Those who did stay risked being tortured and killed by the Spanish Inquisition, which had been established in 1478.
