In Memoriam: David Gitlitz

This past week saw the sad loss of David Gitlitz, a devoted and longtime historian of Spanish & Portuguese Jewry from the time of Inquisition and beyond.

Over his career, Prof. Gitlitz served on the faculty of the University of Nebraska, SUNY-Binghamton and the University of Rhode Island, where he also served as provost. He also published a number of books on the subject of Sephardi Jews, including, Secrecy and Deceit: The Religion of the Crypto Jews.


But perhaps his most popular one was a cookbook written with his wife Linda Kay Davidson called, Drizzle of Honey: The Lives and Recipes of Spain’s Secret Jews, which won a National Jewish Book Award in 1999.
