Vintage Post Card Jewish  Touro Interior Synagogue Newport  R I   # 4117

History First Jews in Newport.  The small but growing colony
of Newport, Rhode Island received its first Jewish residents in the 17th
century, possibly as early as 1658. The earliest known Jewish settlers
arrived from Barbados, where a Jewish community had existed since the
1620s. They were of Spanish and Portuguese origin; their families had
migrated from Amsterdam and London to Brazil and then to islands in the
Caribbean. In Newport they formed a congregation called Nephuse Israel
(Scattered of Israel), the second oldest Jewish congregation in the
United States. By 1677, the community realized the need to acquire land
for a Jewish cemetery. Two of the original immigrants, Mordechai
Campanal and Moses Pacheco purchased the lot at the corner of what is
now Kay and Touro Streets for this purpose.

In the 1680s, Mordechai Campanal, Moses Pacheco and fellow Jewish settlers, Abraham Burgos and Simon and Rachel Mendes tested
the British Navigation laws which prohibited aliens from engaging in
mercantile trades. In 1684 the General Assembly of Rhode Island resolved
that the group was able to conduct business, and that they were
entitled to the full protection of the law as “resident strangers.”
