Tampere is the second largest city in Finland and is located between two lakes. It is a relatively new city, founded in 1775 by Gustav III of Sweden, with the aim of facilitating trade in the region.
A Jewish community was established in the city in 1947. However, this community, consisting of less than a hundred people, ceased to exist in 1981 due to numerous departures. Only nine members remained. It has not been able to reconstitute itself since.
