- Synagogue Mikve Israel-Emanuel
- For close to three centuries, the Sephardic Jews (i.e. Jews of Spanish–Portuguese origin) of Congregations Mikvé Israel and Emanu-El were the only Jews on Curaçao. For over 200 years, they were united in one congregation, Mikvé Israel. Then, in 1864, there was a rift and Sephardic Jewish Reform Congregation Emanu-El was founded, constructing their own building on the Wilhelminaplein, just a couple of blocks from their “mother” synagogue. In 1964, after exactly 100 years of separation, the two Sephardic congregations reunited, creating United Netherlands Portuguese Congregation Mikvé Israel-Emanuel, which follows the Reconstructionist philosophy.
