Jews settled in Barabás in the middle of the 19th century.[3] The synagogue of the Orthodox community was built in 1910. There is a Jewish cemetery on the site.[4]

In 1944, after the German occupation, all the Jews of the village were deported to the Auschwitz extermination camp;[5] only two of them survived after the war.[6]
