List of Jewish Taxpayers, 1789-1791


Below is a list of Jews who paid taxes in Gorodenka in 1789-1791. This list is especially significant because it was in 1787 only two years earlier than the time period covered by the list that Austrian Emperor Joseph II required the Jews of Galicia and Bukovina to adopt permanent surnames.[1] This list, therefore, may be the earliest existing record of some of the family names that it contains.

The German text that accompanied the list refers to taxes that were collected through, and used by, the "Horodenker Jewish Society." A possible explanation can be found in the book Shtetl Memoirs, by Joachim Schönfeld (1985, Ktav Publishing House, Inc.), who writes about the town of Sniatyn, not far from Gorodenka.

According to Schöfeld, the interface between the Jewish community of Sniatyn and the Austrian government was a council called the Jüdische Kultusgemeinde the Board of Jewish Worship and Education. Members of the Board were elected by taxpaying members of the community. Not only did the Board represent the Jewish community to the government, it also controlled the ritual slaughterhouses, the mikvah, the main synagogue, the Jewish school, and other community institutions. Most of the income to support these facilities came from taxes imposed by the Board, collected by government tax collectors and returned to the Board. There was probably a similar organization in Gorodenka.

The source of this list is the following document from the Austrian Archiv des Ministerium des Innern (Wien) [Archive of the Ministry of the Interior (Vienna)]:
