Sampaio was suggested by... someone a while back. Sorry, can't find the email.


  1. Hey things went alright for the Sephardim for a long while! The original communities in Amsterdam, London, and New York, along with a cultural flowering under the Turks...

  2. Other modern Portuguese Jews include distinguished poet Fernando Pessoa (father of 'Jewish origin'), fado composer Alain Oulman, the founder of the Instituto Superior Técnico, and Daniela Ruah from NCIS: LA.

    Two Portuguese Jews that fled the Inquisition that you haven't covered yet are the fascinating Gracia Mendes Nasi and the deep-fried fish of the British dish 'fish and chips'.
