After the destruction of the Jewish community in St. Eustatius in the 18th century, several Jewish families settled in Belize. The Benveniste family was the most prominent. Belize was a trading location for Jamaican Jews. Solly Wolffson (1855-1933) exported Belize timber. The British turned away 85 Jews escaping WWII who reached Belize in 1939. Very few Jews remain in Belize [July 2009]
