Federation of Jewish Communities in Slovakia

Today, there are about 4,000 Jews living in Slovakia, although this area was once one of the important centers of Central European Jewry. The tragic events of the 20th century reduced the Jewish population by 95 percent.

In 1945, after the rest of the Jewish community returned from the concentration camps, it was necessary to deal with the organization of Jewish life and the management of community property.

Today, approximately 4 thousand Jews make up less than one per mille of the Slovak population.
