Legend maintains that the very first explorer inDiego de Almagro, came with a Converso by the name of Rodrigo de Orgonos.
Five years later, Pedro de Valdivia, another conquistador, came with Diego Garcia de Caceres of Plasencia, Spain, who is also believed to have been a Converso.
Nevertheless, the Crypto-Jewish settlement in this relatively remote outpost of the Spanish Empire continued to grow. Secret "judaizing" Crypto-Jewish practices nevertheless persisted in the colony.
The physician Rodrigo Henriquez de Fonseca of Santiago and his wife were burnt at the stake in Lima in on a charge of adherence to the Law of Moses; his brother-in-law, Luis de Riverso, escaped a similar fate by committing suicide in prison.
At the end of the 17th century, the Holy Office in Lima was informed of the presence of approximately 28 "Judaizers" in and around Santiago, though apparently no action was taken on this report.
Jews from other countries became interested in the Jewish community in Chile. Simon de Caceres, an ex-Converso based in London, tried get permission from Oliver Cromwell to lead a military contingent of Jews to conquer uninhabited lands in Chile in The persecution of Conversos ceased when the country gained formal independence from Spain in At that time there were no traces of Judaism that might be attributed to the descendants of Crypto-Jews.
Nevertheless, judaizing sects of Indian ascendancy were discovered in the 20th century who claim to have received their Judaism through the influence of Crypto-Jews. Some of them observe a portion of the Jewish commandments, and others identify solely with the Old Testament and with a small part of the commandments.
The early republican constitution did not serve as a legal basis for overt Jewish life, for it established Roman Catholicism as the state religion and prohibited open practice of any other religion Paragraph 5 of the Constitution of It was only in that a special law permitted non-Catholics to practice their religion in private homes and establish private schools.
A series of liberal laws from the years — that established, inter alia, civil marriage and state-controlled registration of citizens rather than church-controlled extended religious tolerance. The constitution of explicitly established freedom of religious observance for all religions that are not opposed to morality.
During the last decades of the 19th century, the liberal governments promulgated a series of laws that included the creation of lay cemeteries, where burials would be granted without distinction of creed or religious denomination.
These laws were attacked by the Catholic Church and provoked dramatic conflicts between conservatives and liberals, terminating with the victory of the liberal government and the establishment of lay cemeteries. Authorization to create private cemeteries was granted a few years later, and was used mainly by Catholics.
Owing to these developments, the Jews did not encounter any legal impediment in the burial of their dead, their only problem being the cost of mausoleums or plots in the lay cemetery of Santiago for the burial of Jews.
Burial according to Jewish law was thus carried from the early stage of communal organization, resulting gradually in a Jewish cemetery that served both Ashkenazim and Sephardim. This old Jewish cemetery still exists in Santiago. A second cemetery was established in the s in Conchali, adhering to stricter Orthodox norms of burial.

At the start of the pogroms in Russia in —82, Chile was mentioned as a possible haven for persecuted Jews, and during subsequent years it seems that Jews arrived in the country either individually or in small groups. But it was only at the beginning of the 20th century that they began to increase in number.
