Le judaïsme

Judaism was brought to Finland in the early 19th century, mainly by merchants and men working for the Imperial Russian army. By 1939 at the beginning of Winter War against Soviet Union, the number of Jews had risen to 1,793. In the early years of the 20th century Helsinki, Viipuri and Turku acquired their own synagogues. Today, there are two Jewish parishes in Finland in Helsinki and Turku and the number of Jews was 1,133 in 2015.
