    The Last Kabbalist ofLisbon, an international best seller, is an extraordinary novel that transports listeners into the universe of Jewish Kabbalah during the Lisbon massacre of April 1506. Just a few years earlier, Jews living in Portugal were dragged to the baptismal font and forced to convert to Christianity. Many of these “New Christians” persevered in their Jewish prayers and rituals in secret and at great risk…the hidden, arcane practices of the kabbalists, a mystical sect of Jews, continued as well.
