Jewish "Re-Immigration" to Spain; My Doctor's Story (Timothy Ashby, -Spain, 01/14/22 4:24 am)

My local private General Practitioner in Cala Ratjada, Mallorca, near where I live, is a woman in her late 60s named Doctora Moisés Dosal.

She told me that her family re-emigrated (note the "re-") to Spain from Morocco when she was a child, which would have been during the Franco regime. Other relatives emigrated to Israel. Her husband, who shares the practice with her, is named Dr. Serra Comas and is also Jewish.

Doctora Moisés has traced her family back to before 1492 when they fled to Morocco, and she said they had always practiced Judaism "even in the worst of times." She didn't know how many Jews lived in Spain currently but told me she had read that 20% of the modern Spanish population were of Jewish descent. She also said, rather proudly, that General Franco was Jewish. I have read of the latter rumour but have never seen any evidence for it. Perhaps some fellow WAISers may have researched this?

JE comments: We have three of the world's leading Franco authorities in the WAIS ranks, so you've asked at the right place, Tim! Franco certainly hated the "Jewish-Bolshevik-Masonic" cabal, at least publicly, but this tells us nothing about his DNA.

The good Dra Moisés sounds like a fascinating person, who takes the long view when it comes to migration.  Sources say that Spain's current Jewish population is some 50,000, most probably less, which surprises me.  Wouldn't more old Sephardic families want to "return" to the homeland--especially since Spain is an awesome place to live?
