The Jewish community of Diemeringen was organised -synagogue, Jewish school, mikveh- around rue des Juifs (Jews’ Street), today rue au Vin. The community grew in the nineteenth century and counted 139 community members in 1870. The synagogue was built in 1867 and offices sometimes still take place. A Jewish cemetery from 1750 is located by the municipal cemetery.
