Pirates oy vey!

No matter how much history you read, there is always something new to be discovered. Like this:

Believe it or not, Jewish pirates were powerful allies in the Ottoman wars against Spain, which had expelled and dispossessed them in 1492. They were also pioneers in discovering the New World, a new exhibition explains.

Jewish pirates? Next thing I expect to hear is that they kept Shabbat.

Funny you should say that…
