Dani Rotstein, a native of New Jersey, moved to the island of Mallorca in 2014 where he discovered the taboo history of Los Chuetas. He became involved with the local synagogue and began to focus on rebuilding the community.

Vice Presidente

He was born in La Puebla, in the interior of the island of Mallorca, into an illustrious family of jewelers and silversmiths belonging to the Chueta minority, a group of descendants of Majorcan Jewish converts who, due to religious persecution and their subsequent stigmatization, by the end of the 17th century they were forced to practice strict inbreeding, while retaining a strong collective conscience. A self-taught journalist, he has collaborated since 1981 in different publications in the Balearic Islands, including Última Hora, where he maintains a regular column. Also a prolific writer, mostly in Catalan, he cultivated all literary genres with the exception of theater.
