This project seeks to collect all of the Jewish families from the town of Divišov (Diwischau), Czech Republic. From Jewishgen: In Divišov (in the region of Vlašim), a Jewish community was founded on 1 August 1776. In 1893, the community within this area counted approximately 250 Jews. By the time of the last census[2], this number had fallen to 128. At that time, the chairman of the community was the merchant Alois Meisl, who had succeeded Rudolf Frischmann. In the village, there is an old synagogue, a cemetery, and the building in which there had been a Jewish school together with the apartment of the caretaker and the ritual bath. The last rabbi until 1893 was Rabbi Jindřich Schwarzkopf. After this date, the community had no means to pay for its own rabbi and therefore linked itself with the community in Benešov. Services in the synagogue are held only on the High Holy Days. This project also includes village Jews from Zdebuzeves, Kácov, etc.
