500 years ago, Luis De Torres set foot on the island of San Salvador, one of the 700 islands comprising the Bahamas. He was Jewish, a Marano, and the interpreter for Christopher Columbus. Today, in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, stands the Luis De Torres Synagogue, the only Synagogue in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and the pride and joy of
this small Jewish Community.
