Hi Cristiano,
I'm not sure of exact numbers of Jewish soldiers in the Schutztruppe, but as there were many Jews in the Imperial Army and Navy at the time I assume there were also some in the Schutztruppe.

If you want to count them, you´ll have to look in this book:

"Deutsche Jüdische Soldaten 1914 - 1945"
Bonn, Mittler & Sohn, 1983
herausgegeben vom Militärgeschichtlichen Forschungsamt, im Auftrage des Bundesministeriums der Verteidigung.
