What’s more exotic than a Jamaican Jew?

From the Jewish Journal:

Kingston, Jamaica—This island nation boasts miles of pristine beaches, reggae music and the Western hemisphere’s largest butterfly.

Now, it’s promoting a new asset to tourists: its Jews.

While this sounds a little suspicious, some quick research shows that there is actually a pretty deep truth to this latest tourism claim:

the Jamaica Daily Gleaner a newspaper founded by a Jewish Jamaican, Jacob DeCordova in 1834  is still going strong 176 years later in 2010.

Actually, a newspaper that is going strong in 2010 is way more exotic than a Jewish Jamaican community!
