The Touro Synagogue, America's oldest, was built in the mid-18th century by
Sephardi families who had immigrated to Providence, RI >from the island of
Barbados. I would love to hear >from anyone descended >from the founding
families of this revered institution. My interest is not grounded in
kinship but in my study of the history of Jewish families in the US.
