In a remote mountain village in Portugal, an entire Jewish community avoided persecution by keeping their faith and rituals secret, generation after generation, for over 500 years. In Fragile Branches, James Ross explains that while isolated Jewish communities like this one are part of the tree of Jewish life, they have retained and reshaped rituals and traditions that have been lost elsewhere. These fragile branches of the Jewish culture, cut off from mainstream Judaism, exist on every continent and in nearly every country of the world, from the Amazon rainforest to the hills of northeastern India, to the central highlands of Uganda. As modern Jews struggle to revive or reconstruct their traditions, these communities, six of which Ross visits and introduces to us here, can serve as reminders of the diversity and richness of Jewish life.
