According to the 1935 census, Liepaja Jews numbered 7,379 and accounted for 12.9% of the city’s total population.      During World War II almost the whole Jewish Community of Liepaja was exterminated with only 25 Jews surviving in Liepaja after the World War II.
Most of the significant Jewish properties were destroyed during the bombing of the city, including 11 synagogues and prayer houses.
When the Jewish Community’s activities renewed its activities in 1989, significant attention was paid to research, preservation and promotion of the Liepaja Jewish heritage.
