Sample text

Abib’s attitude toward the conversos comes to the fore more clearly in the second haskamah he authored several years later. 80 In other words, if a woman’s husband died in Salonika before she was able to have children with him, and her marriage to him had been performed in front of valid witnesses, she was legally required to marry her husband’s brother (levir), or closest male relative, to ensure that his family line continued (Deut. 25:5–6). alitsah. This gave every childless, widowed Jewish woman who had relatives living as conversos abroad the responsibility of tracking them down before she could think about remarriage to another man.

61 This responsum indicates the extent to which forced converts like Levi ibn H . abib, who returned to Judaism, struggled personally. They felt pangs of guilt for resisting martyrdom. Prominent rabbinic figures like Jacob Berav (1474–1546) also posed additional challenges. 62 Did Levi ibn H . abib deserve to be punished? As a prominent rabbinic figure who had become an accepted member of the Jewish community, why could he not find solace? What were the effects of his experience with conversion on Jacob ibn H .

Spain’s rabbinic authorities wrestled with this question in their legal discussions as they contended with their discomfort over the converso issue,24 opening the way for ibn H . abib to think about Jewish identity both from the perspective of lineage and from the perspective of one’s inner religious convictions. Several late fifteenth-century Spanish rabbinic authorities, including Abraham Saba, Isaac Caro, Joel ibn Shu’eib, Joseph Jabetz, and Isaac Abarbanel, authored responsa on the issue of the Jewish status of the conversos.
