Barbados - The Jewish Community

Spanish and Portuguese Jews from Brazil, Cayenne, Suriname, England, Hamburg, and Leghorn came to Barbados one year after British settlement in 1627. The Jewish community of Bridgetown formed in 1654 and established a synagogue. Thirty Jewish families of Eastern European origin escaping The Nazis settled in Barbados and were joined by Jews from Trinidad.
