Following Spanish Example, Portugal Plans to Grant Nationality to Sephardic Jews

FSWC Reports:


Portuguese Tourism Minister Adolfo Mesquita Nunes, who visited Israel last week, said the final wording of a law granting automatic Portuguese nationality to the descendants of Portugal's Jews will soon be completed. 

The 400,000 members of the Portuguese Jewish community were expelled, killed or forced to convert to Christianity during the Inquisition in the 16th century.
