Strong international trade ties with Catalonia

Around 1916, there was a Jewish community living in Catalonia; they founded the first Jewish community in the city since the Catholic Monarchs. They were mainly Sephardic people who came from the Turkish Empire, and because of the influence of French tradition, and since the term Jewish had very negative connotations, they used Israel as a synonym. Jewish Catalans date back over 100 years with their own community organization, and links remain strong.
