Shelomo Alfassa's Lecture on the
Sephardic Anousim
at the Gomez Mill House Museum

June 13, 2010

A lecture on the Sephardic Anousim was given at the Gomez Mill House, the earliest surviving Jewish dwelling in North America, a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This location has been continuously inhabited for more than 280 years.

In 1714, Luis Moses Gomez, who had fled from the Spanish Inquisition, purchased 6,000 acres of land along the Hudson River in what is today Orange County, New York, where several Indian trails converged. Here he built a fieldstone block house into the side of a hill and by a stream that became known as “Jew's Creek.” Today, the Gomez Mill House is a museum and historic site.
