This weeks Jewish terminology word: Converso

This Ladino word ( Judaeo-Spanish ) root word is  Convert. 

This term was for those Jews who were forced to convert to Christianity in the middle ages during the Spanish Inquisition.
Converso, is a more accurate less disparaging term to the more frequently used Morrano.
Morrano, which comes from the Spanish word swine. 
This where the term……. Morrano Jew come from.
