Granada Jewish museum opens with wedding celebration

A Jewish museum has opened in the Spanish city of Granada and simultaneously hosted a wedding.

Gabriel Perez and Beatriz Cavalier married during the dedication ceremony earlier this month at the Sephardic Museum of Granada – a small institution they set up in the southern Spanish city after years of fundraising and lobbying. It is the city’s first Jewish museum, according to report by the Spanish news agency EFE.

The newlyweds – a historian and the daughter of a Jewish woman who fled the area during the Spanish Civil War – decided to open the museum after a month-long visit in Israel.

Granada has a few dozen Jewish families, a fraction of the community’s pre-Inquisition proportions.
