JewishGen Communities Database

The JewishGen Communities Database contains information about 6,000 Jewish communities in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

This database contains each community's name in various languages, and political jurisdictions during different time periods.

In the search results, hover your mouse over a town name for additional information, or click on the icon next to a community's name to see a full page of information — including maps, Jewish population figures, and links to JewishGen resources for that community.


For a database of all one million localities in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, search the JewishGen Gazetteer.
