Story of
Reclaiming their Judaism has been difficult for many secret Jews,
called “bnai anusim,” or “children of the forced ones,” so it was
with great joy and pride that Vincenzo Uziel Li Calzi, a Sicilian “ben
anusim” made Jewish history by becoming the third Jew to have a
public Bar Mitzvah ceremony on the island of Sicily in 500 years
