Shabbat shalom!

This week we're releasing a tour that Shay took Elise on a couple weeks ago and we're learning a little bit about  the early Jewish History of Rhode Island!

Listen to when the Jewish community first came to Rhode Island (14:22), hear Elise read off some ye olde english (06:24) and attempt to figure out what a boy band-esque group of immigrants argued for (18:36), and the problematic industry that an oppressed group can still be involved in (21:42).

Ye olde excerpt that Elise reads at (06:24):

"Noe person within the sayd colonye at any tyme hereafter, shall bee any wise molested, punished, disquieted, or called in question, for any differences in opinione in matters of religion...all and everye person and persons may...at all tymes hereafter, freely and fullye have and enjoye his and theire owne judgements and consciences, in matter of religious concernments, throughout the tract of lande hereafter mentioned; they behaving themselves peacablie and quietlie, and not using this libertie to lycentiousnesse and profanenesse, nor to the civill injurye or outward disturbeance of any others."
