Select the Martinique link at Jewish settlement dates from around 1600 in this Dutch commercial outpost. In 1667 a synagogue was founded, but Jesuit opposition to Jewish settlement produced King Louis XIV's expulsion of Jews from French islands in 1685. Most of the 96 Jews in Martinique left for Curacao. In 1960s and 1970s, Jews from North Africa and France settled in Fort de France. [October 2005]
