Reseña del editor:

Around 1677 a group of Sephardim (Jews of Iberian descent) from Barbados arrived in Newport, Rhode Island. Despite legal protection, this early settlement did not last. Newport's Jewish community revived in the mid-eighteenth century and built Touro synagogue, a masterpiece of colonial architecture. The American Revolution wrought havoc in Newport. Although the synagogue survived, the Jewish community again dispersed. It only fully re-established itself, mainly in Providence, in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, thanks both to immigration and to increasing opportunities. As many as fifteen to twenty thousand Jewish immigrants settled in Rhode Island from 1870-1924, swelling the state's Jewish population to 25,000. Many of them went into the state's traditional industries - textiles and jewelary - but Jews were also quite active as peddlers and tailors. Today about 18,000 Jews live throughout the Ocean State. Because of its size, the Jewish community retains the character of a traditional small town. Many Jews have attended the same schools, married hometown sweethearts, and have remained loyal to neighborhood synagogues and charities. This anthology celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Rhode Island Jewish Historical Notes, the journal that has presented and preserved much of Rhode Island's Jewish past. There are nearly one hundred photographs, most published for the first time. Through the lens of The Notes, The Jews of Rhode Island provides a panoramic view of a famous yet little-known Jewish community.
