Star of David

Star of David

This Star of David represents the Sephardic Jews that settled in Northern New Mexico. They were exiled from Spain because of their religion; they came with the conquistadores pretending to have converted to Catholicism. In the sparsely populated land around the Española Valley and proximity to the Pueblos, they were able to practice their religion without being noticed. Today there are many descendants; some converted to Catholicism while some did not.
