Source: Select the Puerto Rico link at http://www.worldjewishcongress.org/comm_north.html: "When the island passed from Spanish to American rule at the end of the Spanish-American War in 1898, there were practically no Jews there. However, with the rise of Nazism in Europe, Jewish refugees made their way to Puerto Rico. The Jewish Community Center was founded in 1942. In the 1950s and 1960s, the community was bolstered by the arrival of Jews from the United States and Cuba. Most of the Jews live in the capital, San Juan. There are a few families in Ponce and Mayaguez."
