I, too, have ancestors who were Dutch cigarmakers. I will check through my materials to see if I can find anything quickly for you. However, a few comments: (a) your ancestor's last name in the Netherlands may have begun with "beek" or beeck" and ended with "stijn or "styn," not "stein"; (b) the Dutch kept excellent vital records and you can order them through a Family History Center (Mormon); (c) the Dutch government sponsors the Genlias project on the web, though I have not had much luck with Amsterdam residents; and (d) most importantly, visit the Dutch Jewish Genealogical Database ( Good luck.
