Summary

The Jews of St Eustatius have been examined a few times over the past decades. However, recent excavations and documentary work have revealed new insights into how this important section of the population fulfilled a unique niche in island and Atlantic World society. Details regarding the Synagogue Honen Dalim, the mikveh and the cantor’s home provide a framework to build up a deeper understanding of Jewish social, economic and physical landscapes. The Statian Jewish Diaspora will be shown to be a unique experience in the Colonial world.
