Long before the Jewish settlements in North America, Sephardic Jews came to the Caribbean, first as crew members on Columbus's ships. By the 1600s, they had commercialized the sugar, rum and tobacco industries and won civil liberties that became the standards aspired to by colonial North American Jewry.This is their story, island by island, in Volum I of the author's trilogy, "The Jews in the New World."
