A Jewish community existed in Hodonín (Göding) as early as the first half of the 17th century. Most Jewish families of the fairly large community were expelled from the town in the 18th century. Only 13 Jewish families were granted permission to reside in Hodonin in 1798-1848: David Bauer; Isak Berger; Samson Frankl; Lazar Frankfurt; Benjamin Haas; Israel Körner; Isak Mändel (Rabbi, Sekl Göding); Markus Matzner; Markus Popper; Lazar Redlich; Jakob Stiasny; Bernhard Weiner and Benjamin Weller. The Jewish population increased considerably in the mid-19th century. A ghetto existed south of the main square, next to the chateau, separated from the rest of the town by the Morava river branch. It consisted of about 30 houses, although only 13 houses were recorded in the 18th century. The ghetto was demolished after World War II. -- Austria / Czech Special Interest Group,
