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 T├ęcnico, 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'.
