Hidden for 500 Years, Crypto-Jews in the American Southwest

Jews who had converted to Catholicism in Inquisition Spain and Portugal hid their Jewish faith and found themselves with other adventurers in the 16th and 17th century Americas. Prof. Annette Fromm (Florida Int’l University) will shed light on what drove them to leave Judaism, what forces led them to the Americas where they lived as far from the Inquisition as possible, and how they are now seeking to return to their ancestral heritage.

3 Feet Under: Digging Deep for the Geoduck Clam

We’ll watch 3-Feet Under, an hour long documentary that explores how the geoduck has inspired a quirky yet devoted following in the Pacific Northwest. The star of the film is our very own Jack Bookey, a long-time Seattleite and member of the Endless Opportunities Steering Committee. He will guide us through the many layers of geoduck subculture: college mascots, songs, culinary delicacies, strict regulation, and the notorious Clamscam trials.
