The Jews in British America

"THE JEWS IN BRITISH AMERICA" is a topic that could easily consume many more pages than are available here. To do the topic full justice, one would need to look not only at the British North American colonies but also at English Suriname, Barbados, Nevis, and Jamaica, all of which already had at least some kind of Jewish presence in the second half of the seventeenth century. In addition to the usual topics — political rights, economic structure, social and intergroup relations, cultural life, and so on — one would also want to undertake a detailed comparison between the condition of Jews in the English colonies and the condition of Jews back home in the English mother country. Jews were readmitted into England only in 1655, and began worshipping in public only in 1657. As a result — and in contrast to what we find in the Dutch colonies — Jews in British colonies could not look back to the mother country as a model for how Jews should be treated. Instead, we find Jewish life on both sides of the Atlantic developing more or less simultaneously. This had important and relatively unexplored implications both for the Jews and for those who sought to govern and regulate them.
