They are called “crypto-Jews” or “lost Jews,” and in recent years they have emerged in remote places as scattered as India, Brazil, the American Southwest and here in Colombia.
‘Lost Jews’ Of Colombia Say They’ve Found Their Roots | NCPR News
They were raised as Christians but believe they have discovered hidden Jewish roots, prompting many to return to Judaism. Many say their ancestors were Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain more than years ago, as the Spanish crown embarked on a systematic persecution of Jews. Fleeing for their safety, some wound up in the rugged northwest of Colombia, a region of tradition-bound towns long associated with fervent Catholicism.
But these days, at the small, whitewashed synagogue in Bello, a working-class town next to Medellin, dozens of men and women chant prayers in Hebrew. Their leader, Elad Villegas, 36, says he and others had long felt a bond to Judaism, one they began to explore a few years ago.

The inescapable pull of their ancestors, people in Bello say, led dozens of families that had belonged to an evangelical church to join Villegas as he began the long and difficult conversion to Judaism.
Some of them, like Meyer Sanchez, 37, say it was not easy, particularly the arduous conversion to Orthodox Judaism. Hundreds of years ago, on the Iberian Peninsula, Jews converted to Christianity to cloak their real identities. The Inquisition was at the height of its fury.
They were known as Marranos, or Anusim, and some eventually made their way to Colombia, a country not known for its Jewish culture. Today, only about 7, Jews live here, spread across six cities. In Colombia, the converted Jews founded towns and gave them biblical names, like Jerico.
And some of the given names they handed down point to a Jewish past. With the years, they assimilated and their historical consciousness subsided — though that was not the case for everyone, says Freund.
Though initially a Christian evangelical, he’d long wondered about Jewish ancestors, in part because of nearly imperceptible rituals he saw among older family members. They refused to eat pork, for instance. His grandfather would also wear a hat at all times, even in church.
And in the countryside where they were from, there were other signs of Judaism. Like the ponchos the farmers wore, with their untied four corners. They’re nearly indistinguishable from the prayer shawls — the tallits — worn by devout Jewish men. There is another piece of tantalizing evidence about the region’s Jewish roots, one discovered in That was when the University of Antioquia did a study that showed that 14 percent of the men in the state had genetic markers in their Y chromosome that showed an ancestral tie to the Cohanim, a priestly Jewish cast that goes back three millennia to Moses’ brother, Aaron.
Geneticist Gabriel Bedoya explains that there are other genetic markers he did not study that might also demonstrate Jewish heritage. These days in Bello, it’s not hard to decipher the Jewish influence — the new Orthodox Jewish influence.
Men in skullcaps stroll the streets. The women cover their heads and wear dresses to their knees. There’s an afternoon Hebrew preschool, and a kosher bakery.
But he’d visited Israel, and had also played saxophone in a band that performed Jewish songs for Medellin’s traditional Jewish community. And so little by little, he’d started to feel the pull of Judaism. He explains it as a spark, which led him to a new religion that made him feel comfortable. These days, he and his family pray daily; on a recent afternoon, his wife, Galit, leads the chants. They are working hard to raise their small children, Baruj and Gabriela, as observant Jews.
