A town, four kilometers from Stara Lubovna, which in the past had a small Jewish community of 90 people. The Jews of this village had a house of prayer, cemetery, and mikvah and they fell under the jurisdiction of the Stara Lubovna rabbinate. Most of the local Jews were deported to extermination camps in 1942.
