I completed my manuscript on Surinam Jewry, entitled Another Environment: Jews in Surinam in the second half of the century. Most of the second part of the year was devoted to the setting-up of a socio-demographic research project and beginning of collecting the archival material on early nineteenth century European Jewry.
