Several Spanish news websites have reported on the opening today of a centre dedicated to the history of the Sephardic Jewish communities in Spain. The building is in Castrillo Mota de Judios - about 4km north-west of Castrojeriz. A place settled by Jewish people expelled from Castrojeriz in the 14th century. Archaeological work is continuing to uncover elements of the village's Jewish history. The place became internationally famous in 2015 when the community voted to change its name from the controversial "Castrillo Matajudíos" to its current form.

 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.

So happy to hear about this. As a Jew on the Camino in September/October this year, I'd pre-researched options for how I might spend Rosh Hashanah. In the end, I'd preplanned to buy apples and honey and share them with fellow Pilgrims at my Albergue. But the best laid plans ...
On Rosh Hashanah I found myself in Burgos, eating dinner with Camimo-friends I'd met in SJPdP. We had lots of sweets for dessert and I explained the Rosh Hashanah tradition. And the next morning, not far from Burgos, I passed a beautiful life-sized piece of metal art of a Pilgrim painted in rainbow colors, confirming my belief that ALL should not only BE, but also FEEL welcome on the Camino.
