If you have further interest in this and are in Portugal, I recommend going to Belmonte where the last remaining community of the descendants of crypto-Jews still exists.  There is a Synagogue, small museum and we had a very interesting tour there with the founder of the museum.  Small town but we were travelling with a Rabbi who needed a quiet place for Shabbat anyway so we rented a car and drove here and stayed at the Pousada  Convento in Belmonte - with hiking and lovely grounds.  Was great stop between the business of Porto and Lisbon (although not  geographically between the 2)

My sister went to Portugal for the first time last year. She is interested in contemporary art and really enjoyed their art scene. I would love to visit Kadoorie Synagogue. (Though at this point I would love to visit anywhere that isn't my house, but don't expect to be able to do that for perhaps another year. )
