Jewish Residents since 1800

 

 

After the French surrender in September 1800, the Maltese asked King George III of England for protection, and Malta came under British control. Trade follows the flag, and Sir Alexander Ball, the British Commissioner, set out to develop Malta’s trade connections. Jewish traders were active in many Mediterranean ports, especially Gibraltar which was already a British colony, and families from there were amongst the earliest to arrive in Malta.

 

Others came from North African countries which at that time were part of the Ottoman Empire and from the Levant. Most were of the Sephardic tradition, since the Jews who were expelled from Spain in 1492 dispersed to various parts of the Ottoman Empire around the Mediterranean.

 

The Abeasis family from Gibraltar and the Borges da Silva family from Portugal were amongst the earliest arrivals. Both families played important roles in the development of trade and the life of the Jewish Community in Malta throughout the 19th Century.

 

Abraham A. Correa, was born in England, he was a school teacher and arrived in Malta around 1809. He did his best to help not only the other Jewish residents but also Jewish visitors from overseas. In 1832 he was the Hon. Secretary of the British Jews Committee, with Jacob Borges da Silva as President.

The major event in the history of Jewish residency in Malta was the arrival from Tripoli in 1846 of Rabbi Josef Tajar with his wife Esmeralda and their children. The family took up residence at 155 Strada Reale, Valletta, where the Synagogue was located. As a part time Rabbi, he needed an income from other activities to support his family so he went into business.

 

In 1851 he became the full time Rabbi and was responsible for the school teaching Jewish children. He had Abram Masliah as deputy Rabbi. The business he had established was placed in the hands of his sons Saul, Jacob and Cesare. All three sons had been born in Tripoli but had made Malta their home. Rabbi Joseph Tayar died in 1863, and his wife Esmeralda in 1874. Both were buried in the Jewish Cemetery at Ta’ Braxia.

It is a Jewish custom for visitors to a grave to place a small stone on the headstone. 

 

After the death of Rabbi Joseph Tayar in 1863, Sion Attias from Tripoli became Rabbi, followed by Rabbi Fragi Nimni in 1878. He was still at the Strada Reale Synagogue in 1893.

 

The last Rabbi to be appointed was Rabbi Nissim Ohayon in 1934. He was born in Morocco but lived in Portugal with his wife and children. He accepted the post of Rabbi in Malta and the family settled down on the island, where he served until his death in 1956. Nowadays his descendants are the largest resident family.

During 1851 the Governor Sir William Reid asked the Commissioner of Police to list the Jewish families then living in Malta, and to report on their financial circumstances, since aid had been requested to provided a Synagogue. At that time the leadership of the Jewish community was provided by Jacob Abeasis, Raffaele Bismot and Riccardo Pariente.

 

Frederick Sedley provided the Governor with the information that none of the Jewish families were without means of support. The Borges da Silva and Sonnino families were shown as very wealthy, whilst others had a comfortable and decent lifestyle. Sir William Reid in consequence informed London that the British Government did not need to give any assistance to the Jewish community.

 

They were mainly in Commerce or Finance, working as Agents and Brokers, whilst some were shopkeepers and traders.

 

In 1881 the break down of Jewish Residents was recorded as:

 

British 79 – Turkish 48 – Italian 9 – Portuguese 4 – Tunisian 3 – German 2 = 145 total

The category British included those born in the United Kingdom, Gibraltar and Malta, whilst Turkish covered those people born in countries within the Ottoman Empire. 

 

The Jewish population in Malta since 1800 has fluctuated but never exceeded a total of 200 men, women and children. With a shortage of females of marriageable age young Jewish men would often have to travel to Italy or North African countries to find a bride.

 

The Jews on Malta are from both Sephardic and Ashkenazi roots, and there have been occasional instances of marriages to Roman Catholic brides/bridegrooms and vice versa.

 

In 1948 the total number of Jews living in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, was around 600,000 but by 2002 this number had fallen to between 7,000 and 8,000. The majority had emigrated to Israel which was created as a Jewish homeland on 14th May 1948. Israel also attracted Jewish immigrants from all over the world and by 2002 the population had grown to over five million.

In the 1930's the growth of the Nazi Party in Germany led to anti-Jewish laws and persecution. Such discriminatory laws and persecution spread to Austria after the Anschluss on 13th March 1938. The rise to power of Mussolini in Italy meant that during the second half of the 1930’s anti-Jewish Laws were being enacted in Libya and in 1939 the country was formally annexed to Italy.

 

Jews living in these areas found daily life getting more and more threatening and unbearable and decided to emigrate and some families selected Malta for their new home.

 

After the Second World War the new Jewish settlers in Malta were mainly British looking forward to enjoying their retirement in English speaking country with a relaxed environment and sunshine most of the year.

Achille Tayar was President of the Jewish Community during World War One and continued at its head until his death in 1944. He was succeeded as President by Fortunato Habib who held the position until his death in 1963, when George Tayar took over. Upon George Tayar's death in 1994 Abraham Hayim Ohayon, the son of Rabbi Nissim Ohayon, was elected as the President. 

 

From 155 Strada Reale the Synagogue moved during the second half of the 19th Century to 9 Strada Sperone (Spur Street) opposite Lower St. Elmo Gate. It was still there at the time of the First World War under the control of Major Michael Adler DSO, Senior Jewish Chaplain to the Forces.

 

The building was demolished in 1979 as part of slum clearance and road widening scheme, and the community were without a Synagogue until 1984 when on Rosh Hashana 5745, a new Synagogue was inaugurated in 182 Strada San Ursola. This served the Jewish Community until 1995 when a bulldozer working on an adjacent building site undermined the foundations causing the building containing the Synagogue to collapse.

 

The three earlier Synagogues were in rented accommodation and Mr. Abraham Ohayon felt it was time to have one owned by the Jewish Community. In 1998 he made an appeal for funds which was met with a generous response not only from the Maltese Community but also from the USA and Britain. The total amount of money received was sufficient to purchase a flat in Ta Xbiex and convert it into a Jewish Centre and Synagogue. It opened in January 2000.

One of the indications that Jews were present on Malta many centuries before 1800 is the fact that some of the commonest Maltese surnames have evolved from Semitic origins. Azzopardi (sephardi jew), Borg (castle), Buttigieg (poultry man), Farrugia (chicken), Micallef (judge), Xerri (rascal) are examples. The history of the Jews in Malta during the Middle Ages can be found in the published works of Dr. Cecil Roth and Professor Godfrey Wettinger.

There are three cemeteries still in existence, Kalkara Jewish cemetery now closed but used until about 1833, Ta Braxia Jewish cemetery now closed but used from 1836 until about 1891, and Marsa Jewish cemetery which opened about 1887 and is still in use today.
