ISFSP visits Rollins College


On November 17, 2004 the ISFSP fulfilled an invitation and visited the Rollins College Program in Jewish Studies to discuss Sephardic Jewry with undergraduate students. In a class taught by Dr. Yehudit Greenberg, of the Philosophy and Religion Department, students learned about the expulsion from Spain and were briefed on the Anusim, these were Jews who were forced to convert to Christianity but practiced Judaism in secret. Topics involving the various cultures and sub-divisions within Judaism were also discussed.

Founded in 1885 by New England Congregationalists who sought to bring their style of liberal arts education to the Florida frontier, Rollins is the oldest recognized college in the state of Florida. Today more than 1,700 undergraduate students enjoy small classes, personal interaction with an outstanding faculty, and a lush, 70-acre campus. This Spanish Mediterranean styled campus is consistently ranked as one of “America's best colleges” in the U.S. News & World Report.
