Jewish Community of Malta (JCM)

The Jewish Community of Malta today consists of twenty-five families, many elderly and some with only one remaining member. There have been no new immigrants for several years, but we have several small children, including a set of quadruplets, (the first ever recorded in Maltese Jewish History), and in these children lies our hope for the future. We hold Morning Services on Shabbat and on the first days of the main festivals.

The community is an unusual mixture of Sephardi, Askenazi, Orthodox, Reform, and Liberal, which manages to co-exist quite happily, in an atmosphere of tolerance towards our differences. We import Matzos and kosher wine for Pesach.

The Community owns a cemetery dating back to the middle of the last century, and there are the remains of two earlier ones.
