- The first certain traces of Jewish life in the area of today's Burgenland go back to the 13th century. Most prominent among the Jewish communities of Burgenland, which belonged until 1921 to Hungary, are the "Seven Communities (Hebrew: Sheva Kehillot)": Eisenstadt, Mattersburg, Kittsee, Frauenkirchen, Kobersdorf, Lackenbach and Deutschkreutz (Hebrew: Zelem).
There has been a Jewish community in the United Kingdom for nearly a 1,000 years and the community has a rich history, heritage and physical presence across the country, in city, town and countryside.
