Synagogue is the synagogue of the Aruban Jewish community, located in Oranjestad
. Beth Israel Synagogue is an independent congregation with a liberal style similar to Reform Judaism or Conservative Judaism.
The community consists mostly of Jewish immigrants that arrived in Aruba from different parts of the World
, and made it their home. After 1924, a large group of Eastern European Jews, mostly from Poland
, settled here, together with Jews from Holland and Sephardic families from the previously Dutch South American colony of Surinam. The community opened a Jewish center in 1942 - the Jewish Country Club - and four years later, with the arrival of some Holocaust survivors, the community was officially organized.
