Stories from Curaçao’s Jewish History

Hosted By: Qesher

The island of Curaçao is considered the cradle of Judaism in the Americas. The almost 400 years of Jewish presence here are exemplified by Mikvé Israel-Emanuel, the oldest synagogue in continuous use in the continent. The founders of this congregation were Jews from the Amsterdam Portuguese community, whose success allowed them to help start other communities in the Caribbean and provide support to congregations in New York and Rhode Island. The history of Congregation Mikvé Israel-Emanuel will be told through stories of events that have formed it, and the broader Jewish community as they are today.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
