Watch From Teeming Zion's Fertile Womb": The Curious Career of Judah Monis

Judah Monis was born in Italy, received a Jewish education in Livorno and Amsterdam, and traveled to New York in 1716, where he affiliated briefly with that city's Shearith Israel congregation. Why and how he ended up moving to Cambridge, Massachusetts, accepting a teaching position at Harvard and converting to Christianity is the subject of this talk hosted by the Jewish Heritage Center and presented by Michael Hoberman, the author of "New Israel/New England: Jews and Puritans in Early America."
