The Landjudenschaften operated within German Jewry in the early part of the modern era, up to the beginning of the nineteenth century. In contrast with the autonomous institutions – the Va’adim or Medinot – of East European Jewry, which were corporations of communities, the Landjudenschaften, notwithstanding the existence of organized local communities, were essentially associations of individuals. To a large extent, they combined the functions and powers of a local community with those of an intercommunal body.
This three-volume series collects documents pertaining to the Landjudenschaften in German, Hebrew and Yiddish, accompanied by notes and historical commentary in German.
