History edit

Jews lived in Radomysl since the 16th century. After a national liberation war, the Radomyshl kagal was completely devastated and almost disappeared. The second wave of Jewish settlement started in the 18th century. At that time Jews made up the majority of the population of Radomysl.[2] In 1845, there were seven synagogues in Radomyshl.[3]
