An Atlantic Perspective on the Jewish Struggle for Rights and Opportunities in Brazil, New Netherland, and New York

IN THE MIDDLE THIRD OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY, Jews experienced a range of treatment within the Dutch Atlantic world. Amsterdam tolerated a sizable Jewish community and became the center of Jewish life in western Europe. Dutch Brazil encouraged Jewish settlement in an ecumenical effort to wrest Brazil from Portuguese control. There, hundreds of Jews flourished, as they did later in other Dutch colonies of South America and the Caribbean. Yet in New Amsterdam, geographical precursor to the center of North American Jewry — New York City — Dutch leaders persecuted a few dozen Jews and succeeded in preventing the creation of a prosperous Jewish community.
