The Jews of Carinthia belonged to the Jewish Community of Graz prior to 1923, when Klagenfurt established its own Jewish community. Since 1955, the Jews of Carinthia have again been part of the reestablished Jewish Community of Graz.

"In 1783 Jews were permitted to attend fairs in Carinthian towns. Those Jews who had acquired civic rights when part of Carinthia was included in the "province of Illyria" established by Napoleon (1809) were permitted to retain them (1817). Jews again settled in Carinthia after the promulgation of the "forced constitution" of 1849 but were not permitted to acquire real estate there until 1867. The first immigrants mainly came from Galicia, Bohemia, Moravia, and Hungary.... The first congregation was founded at Klagenfurt in 1886. The number of Jews living in Carinthia remained small even in modern times: there were 169 Jewish residents in 1890, of whom 122 lived in Klagenfurt and the rest in nine other localities. Until 1922 the communities were affiliated to the community of *Graz . There were 269 Jews living in Carinthia in 1934, and 257 at the end of 1938. The men were deported to Dachau concentration camp on November 10, 1938, but were released before February 1939. Subsequently the Jews in Carinthia moved to Vienna or emigrated. There were ten Jews living in Klagenfurt in 1968 and the Jewish population of Carinthia has remained marginal into the 21st century." (Encyclopedia Judaica, https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/carinthia)

This project attempts to reconstruct the Jewish Community of Klagenfurt, hoping for eventual access to the Klagenfurt register in Graz.
