This month's destination: Amsterdam!

    In the 17th century Holland underwent a flowering. Their trade system was second to none, their republican government was unique in the world and the domination of Catholic Spain had been broken. Amsterdam and all the cities of Holland welcomed Jews. Many of Sephardic Jews fleeing persecution in Spain came to Holland and prospered. Amsterdam was the home of both Rembrandt and Spinoza.
