Isaac Monsanto and other traders spited the rarely enforced Code Noir banning their occupancy, but it wasnt until the Louisiana Purchase that larger numbers colonized the area. Immigrants like the Sartorius brothers and Samuel Zemurray made their way from Central and Eastern Europe to settle the bayou country along the Mississippi.

They made their homes in and around New Orleans and the Mississippi River delta, establishing congregations like that of Tememe Derech and BNai Israel, with the mighty river serving as a mode of transportation and communication, connecting the communities on both sides of the riverbank.
