The 1936 U. S. Census of religious denominations gave the number of members of Jewish congregations as 4,641,124, as against 4,081,242 in 1926, the figures for 1926 representing all Jews in communities having congregations.

The United States religious census of 1906 credited the Jews with 101,457 heads of families, principally male heads, and the census of 1916 fixed the number of heads of families (including seat holders and other contributors) but admittedly incomplete, at 357,135.

There were Jews in the original American colonies before 1650. In New York, then New Amsterdam, there were Jews in 1654, and in the fall of that year a company of Jewish refugees arrived from Brazil and settled in the colony.

The Congregation sheerith Israel (Remnant of Israel) was founded in 1656. The first minister was
Saul Moreno (Brown) who came from Newport, R. I., and the synagogue was on Mill St., now South
William St.
