Over the last 350 years, two million Jews emigrated to America from eastern & central Europe & from the Caribbean. Once settled as Americans, they created new Jewish religious, cultural, & charitable assoc. that fit the American experience. When Britain took the port of Phila. & territory around the Delaware River from Holland in 1664, it promised “liberty of conscience in church discipline” to settlers. From then on, Jewish traders could travel & live freely in PA.
