Tomado de: Jews in Colombia
Open Jewish settlers since end of 18th century - cemeteries - Jewish congregations - Alliance committee]
It was only at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, however, that the first Jews openly began to settle in Columbia. They came from the Antilles islands of Jamaica and Curaçao and by the middle of the century had settled in Barranquilla, Santa Marta, Riohacha, and Cartagena, as well as in other port cities.
In 1844 a cemetery was established in Santa Maria. In 1853, the Jews of Barranquilla were granted a plot of ground by the government to be set aside as a cemetery; in 1874, the Jews, together with the Protestants and the Catholics, set up a new communal cemetery divided into sections.
In the same year a Jewish congregation was organized and several of its members were active in the development of vital concerns, such as the local bank and the water works. From its inception in 1877 until the beginning of the 20th century , the latter was headed by two Jews, Augustin Senior and David de Sola, who were also among the leaders of the Jewish community. The descendants of the first Jews of Barranquilla are Catholics and are today among the leaders of the non-Jewish community. A local committee of the *Alliance Israélite Universelle was established in Barranquilla in 1867 and in Ríohacha in 1871.
En su casa se reunieron los primeros Judios de Baranquilla a celebrar los ritos. Uno de los fundadores del Cementerio Sefardita de Barranquilla.
Propietario con su medio hermano Jacob de A.J. Senior & Cia.
