History:

The History of the Jews in Wallisgrün : The Jewish Congregation of Wallisgrün (Neu-Wallisdorf) exists since the founding of the village, in any case since before the year 1783. In 1812 the Temple was built, for that purpose, the Congregation received generous support from the patron, His Excellency Count Wallis from Fkolleschowitz, who donated the site, wood, etc. 121 Souls. The ceremonial bath exists since the congregation was formed.

In the year 1820 there were 49 Jewish inhabitants and about 20 in the year 1880. The last Jewish inhabitant was Theodore Honig in 1929.
