Horsens, Denmark - JewishGen Scandinavia SIG

it looks like there is no foundation to my idea of a jewish connection


According to the Census of 1. July 1787 only two Jewish families lived in Horsens: Joel Ballin and Isac Zacharias Levy.

In the beginning of the 19th Century a few more families had come to Horsens from Fredericia. At the request of David Davidsen, Joseph Carl Wulff and Isac Zacharias Levy the Jews in Horsens got permission in 1803 to establish a synagogue.

Horsens, Denmark - JewishGen Scandinavia SIG: "Horsens Jewish Cemetery
The Jewish cemetery in Horsens was established in 1850 when an area of some 7,000 square 'alen' [1 'alen' ~ two feet] outside the town was bought for 250 Rigsbankdaler and conveyed to Moses Isac Levy, as representative for the Jewish congregation.
Until that time Jews had been buried in Fredericia Jewish Cemetery.
