This project seeks to collect all of the Jewish families from the town of Nová Cerekev (Neu Cerekwe or Neu Zerekwe) in Bohemia, Czech Republic.

The synagogue in Nova Cerekev (pictured at right) was built in ~1855, following an earlier synagogue. The building was recently restored, and is now in occasional use as a community arts venue.

The Jewish cemetery is adjacent to the synagogue.

Many birth (N), marriage (O) and death (Z) records for the Jewish community in Nova Cerekev can be found in the following digitized archives:
Židovské matriky-- NOVÁ CEREKEV (o. Pelhřimov)

Židovské kontrolní matriky -- NOVÁ CEREKEV (Neu Cerekwe, o. Pelhřimov)

Additional records, including Familiant records for Nova Cerekev families, can often be found in nearby towns. The 1783, 1793, and 1799 Tabor census records may provide further information.

The JewishGen locality page for Nova Cerekev has limited information, but shows a map with nearby towns.
