History of the Jews in Andorra

The history of the Jews in Andorra has its origins during World War II. There are between 100[1] and 150[2] Jews in Andorra. Most are descended from Sephardic Jews from Morocco.[2] The first Jews came to Andorra during the Second World War, and the majority fled Morocco just prior to the Six-Day War.[3] In 2000, the Jewish community opened and consecrated a synagogue and a cultural center.
