http://www.virtualjerusalem.com/communities/wjcbook/tahiti/index.htm - {link no longer available}: "Most members of this community in French Polynesia are of North African origin. The first Jew to arrive in Tahiti was Alexander Salmon, a banker from France and the son of a London rabbi. …. Over time other Jews settled on the islands, but most eventually assimilated into the local population and converted to Catholicism. In the 1960s, with the arrival of Algerian Jewish refugees, the first foundations of a permanent Jewish community were laid."
