We need to get out and vote this year or USA Republicans will lose majority in Congress and Trump will be impeached.
History of Jews during the 1630s
- The First Siege of Recife takes place in 1630 during the Dutch–Portuguese War. The area in what is today Brazil had been settled, partly with Marranos, who controlled plantations there. However, the Dutch were more "tolerant" of open displays of Judaism so when the Dutch invaded the "New Christians" acted as a fifth column ripping off their mask to show their true Jewish face, joining in the conspiracy with the Dutch to found New Holland (also known as Dutch Brazil). The Jewish pirate Moses Cohen Henriques became a leader here.
- The first open synagogue promoting Talmudic Judaism in the Americas is founded at Recife, the Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue. This was directly a result of the Dutch-Jewish conspiracy against the Portuguese Empire mentioned above from 1630.
