Note: 
Handsome black and white photographs of Rhode Island's Touro synagogue and reproductions of historic portraits and documents accompany Fisher's text. He has written several capsule histories into this volume: the history of the first Jewish settlers - Sephardim who were heirs to the rich Iberian culture destroyed to the Inquisition; the history of Roger William's Rhode Island Colony which welcomed diverse religious groups; the history of the development of religious freedom in North America, exemplified by George Washington's assurance to Touro congregants that the new society would give "to bigotry no sanction.","0
