Adentrarse en el legado judío en la Comunitat Valenciana ya es muy fácil a golpe  de clic gracias al trabajo que ha realizado José Gregorio Lepervanche Valencia, un  descendiente de sefardíes de la familia Semah de Valencia que hace un par de  años regresó a España tras recuperar la nacionalidad de sus antepasados y se  afincó en el Port de Sagunt. Con su dominio de la tecnología, este profesor de  Sistemas de Información en varias universidades de los EEUU ha geolocalizado 19  juderías grandes y pequeñas en la Comunidad Valenciana, así como 100 en la  Península Ibérica, incluyendo fotos actuales que permiten hacerse una idea de la  huella que dejaron y que se mantiene de muy diversas maneras.  

Esto permite identificar fácilmente en internet los antiguos barrios y cementerios  judíos, aunque en algunos lugares no quede ni rastro de ellos y hasta ahora  estuvieran totalmente olvidados. Se trata de ubicaciones realizadas a partir de  documentación de diferentes épocas, placas en calles, crónicas y artículos. Pese a  que en muchos casos no hay ubicación exacta de las juderías, Google Maps ha  aceptado la geolocalización de lugares significativos relacionados con ellas como  plazas, portales o antiguas sinagogas que sí evocan aquel pasado.  

Esta tarea que inició como parte de un curso de Turismo Cultural ha puesto de  relieve grandes diferencias en cuanto a la preservación de ese legado en el día a  día de las distintas poblaciones, así como en su difusión turística. En la Comunitat  Valenciana, Lepervanche destaca el caso de Sagunt, única localidad valenciana  integrada en la Red de Juderías, seguida de Chelva. «La de Sagunt está  perfectamente conservada la trama urbana y tenemos un cementerio judío, con  tumbas e hipogeos, además de un micvé. De hecho, era la única judería que  aparecía localizada en Google Maps, pero yo he actualizado datos. En Chelva  también se conserva muy bien la judería y, además, acaban de hacer una  restauración».  

Tras hacer un exhaustivo recorrido para documentarse y sacar fotos, admite «el  gran encanto» de las calles de esos barrios que se preservan en los pueblos  castellonenses de Morella y Sant Mateu, así como el trabajo que se está haciendo  en Onda y Alzira para recuperar unos restos arqueológicos de esa época.  

Más allá de esto, en algunas localidades ha encontrado calles con nombres o  placas alusivas a la judería, como en Gandía, Requena, Vila-real o Castelló. Sin  embargo, ve llamativa su ausencia en Xàtiva «cuando en el museo sí tienen una pieza de yeso con caracteres hebreos», afirma tras aclarar que en Alzira ha  geolocalizado tanto la judería «antigua» como la «nueva».  

Aún así, su mayor sorpresa ha sido recorrer València capital y Alicante sin hallar  toponimia o placas alusivas a la antigua judería. «Yo creo que estos sitios deberían  recordarse, por lo menos con una placa. Al menos, esto demostraría que hay  interés por esta parte de la historia y sería una vía de suscitarlo a otros», decía.  Dispuesto a «ayudar a recuperar la memoria sefardí», Lepervanche ha reunido  todo su trabajo en una web, además de crear una página en una red social que ya  tiene más de 600 integrantes. Su objetivo siempre es el mismo: Que eso que está  en muchos libros se abra paso «en los caminos turísticos, entre la gente y la  sociedad».  

En este sentido, opina que Sagunt «es un ejemplo a seguir» ya que, «desde su  entrada en la Red de Juderías de España, ha organizado eventos escolares  divulgativos y lúdicos, como las exitosas gincanas para familias sobre Sefarad que  recrean cómo era la vida entonces y la expulsión», decía animando así a fomentar  «toda esa parte educativa». «Yo creo que a todo este legado hay que darle más  relevancia a nivel turístico en la Comunidad Valenciana. Posiblemente hasta ahora  no ha habido un interés tan profundo de buscar la herencia judía hasta que en  2015 salió la ley que concede la nacionalidad a descendientes de sefardíes; una  ley que ya ha ampliado dos veces los plazos para hacer estas solicitudes, hasta  septiembre de 2021, pero que ojalá los prorroguen más para dar más tiempo a  que, ahora que estamos en pandemia, la gente pueda entregar toda la  documentación».

A researcher places the 19 Jewish quarters of the C. Valenciana on the internet.

A Sephardic man spreads the location of those ancient neighborhoods and  Hebrew footprints completely forgotten even on the street.  

Delving into the Jewish legacy in the Valencian Community is already very easy at  the click of a button thanks to the work done by José Gregorio Lepervanche  Valencia, a descendant of Sephardic Jews from the Semah family of Valencia who  a couple of years ago returned to Spain after recovering the nationality of his ancestors and settled in the Port de Sagunt. With his mastery of technology, this  professor of Information Systems in several universities in the USA has geolocalized 19 large and small Jewish quarters in the Valencian Community, as well as 100 in  the Iberian Peninsula, including current photos that allow an idea of the footprint  that they left and that is maintained in many different ways.  

This makes it easy to identify old Jewish neighborhoods and cemeteries on the  internet, although in some places there is no trace of them and until now they  have been totally forgotten. These are locations made from documentation from  different periods, street signs, chronicles and articles. Despite the fact that in  many cases there is no exact location of the Jewish quarters, Google Maps has  accepted the geolocalization of significant places related to them such as squares,  portals or old synagogues that do evoke that past.  

This task that began as part of a Cultural Tourism course has highlighted great  differences in terms of the preservation of this legacy in the day-to-day life of the  different populations, as well as in its tourist diffusion. In the Valencian  Community, Lepervanche highlights the case of Sagunt, the only Valencian town  integrated into the Network of Jewish Quarters, followed by Chelva. «The one in  Sagunt, the urban layout is perfectly preserved and we have a Jewish cemetery,  with tombs and hypogea, as well as a micvé. In fact, it was the only Jewish quarter  that was located on Google Maps, but I have updated data. In Chelva the Jewish  quarter is also very well preserved and, in addition, a restoration has just been  carried out ”.  

After making an exhaustive tour to document himself and take photos, he admits  “the great charm” of the streets of those neighborhoods that are preserved in the  Castellón towns of Morella and Sant Mateu, as well as the work that is being done  in Onda and Alzira to recover some archaeological remains from that time.  

Beyond this, in some localities he has found streets with names or plaques  alluding to the Jewish quarter, such as in Gandia, Requena, Vila-real or Castelló.  However, his absence is striking in Xàtiva “when the museum does have a plaster  piece with Hebrew characters,” he affirms after clarifying that in Alzira he has  geolocated both the “old” and the “new” Jewry. 

Even so, his biggest surprise has been to visit Valencia capital and Alicante  without finding place names or plates alluding to the old Jewish quarter. “I think  these places should be remembered, at least with a plaque. At least, this would  show that there is interest in this part of history and would be a way to arouse it  to others, “he said. Willing to “help recover the Sephardic memory”, Lepervanche  has gathered all his work on a website, in addition to creating a page on a social  network that already has more than 600 members. His goal is always the same:  That what is in many books makes its way “on tourist roads, between people and  society.”  

In this sense, he believes that Sagunt “is an example to follow” since, “since  joining the Network of Jewish Quarters of Spain, he has organized educational  and recreational school events, such as the successful gymkhanas for families on  Sepharad that recreate what the life then and expulsion, “he said, thus  encouraging the promotion of” all that educational part. ” «I believe that all this  legacy must be given more relevance at the tourist level in the Valencian  Community. Possibly until now there has not been such a deep interest in seeking  the Jewish heritage until the law that grants nationality to descendants of  Sephardic Jews came out in 2015; a law that has already extended the deadlines  for making these requests twice, until September 2021, but hopefully they will be  extended further to allow more time for people to deliver all the documentation  now that we are in a pandemic.”

Mostar. One City, One River, One Bridge…Two Communities

2014-Mostar-Bridge-Poster-1024x768

Another #GlobalLearningAdventures’ presentation. Our journey to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar, a city divided by a river and connected by a historic bridge. Two communities living in both sides of the city reconstructing their lives, city and country after a war.

We visited Bosnia and Herzegovina and went to Medjugorje and Mostar. We started on Italy and crossed Slovenia and Croatia before arriving to Medjugorje. We visited Mostar in a rainy day and we were able to visit downtown, a mosque, and a catholic church. We crossed the Old Bridge and talked to locals. We crossed the street that separated both sides during the was and we were able to see buildings with bullet holes.  Our Mostar presentation explores post-conflict reconstruction, projects, businesses, and government. 

I attended a presentation about history of Bosnian-Serbian relations by Dr. Andrew Holt. The frame of reference was the book “The Bosnia List” and part of FSCJ “The Authors’ Series”. It was great to learn about the history I was able to live during our visit to Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
