Based on an ethnography conducted between 2013 and 2015, this article explores how a former Charismatic Evangelical community has developed a dramatic Judaizing process in Brazil. While this transformation seeks to restore some Christian understandings and practices deemed as `degenerated', the community's shift is also motivated by claims of a recovered Jewish descent through Bnei Anussim identities. By embodying religious observance inspired by Jewish Orthodoxy the community collectively reconstructs their Marrano's identities. However, rather than a linear identification with Judaism, the community negotiate their radical Judaising process with elements of their Christian past.
