History and Community

Some Jews have lived on the island since the 17th century, but a congregation was formed only in the 20th century. In 2020, there was only an estimated 100 Jews in the country. The permanent Jewish population is often outnumbered by many Jewish tourists from Britain, the US and Canada, and Jewish personnel attached to the US military base on the island. Religious services, conducted by a lay reader, are held once or twice a month and also on the High Holy Days, in different locations.
