Jewish Cemetery

A poignant reminder of Nevis’ once-prominent Jewish community, who found their way to the island in the 17th and 18th centuries after their forced exodus from Brazil, the Jewish Cemetery now ranks among the island’s most significant historic sites. Around 19 tombstones still stand in the cemetery, with the earliest dating back to 1679, and inscriptions in Hebrew, English and Portuguese. 

Nevis’ Jewish population, who brought with them secrets of crystallizing sugar, were an important key to success for the island’s sugar industry, and archeologists also believe nearby ruins to be the remains of a synagogue and Jewish school.
