History of Jewish immigration

The first jews immigrants to arrive in Nicaragua came from Eastern Europe after 1929.
The Jews in Nicaragua were a relatively small community, most lived in Managua. They made ​​significant contributions to the economic development of Nicaragua while engaged in the cultivation, manufacture, and retail sales.

The highest number of Jews in Nicaragua reached an estimated peak of 250 in 1972.
The Jewish Congregation of Nicaragua was the central Jewish organization until 1979.
The community had a synagogue and community center, as well as Bnai Brith lodge and international Zionist Organization of Women chapter ( WIZO ).

That same year, a devastating earthquake hit Managua and destroyed 90 % of the city, prompting many Jews to emigrate.

After 1990, with the change of government, a small number of Jews returned to Nicaragua.


Currently, the Jewish population is made up of about 40 members gathered in 15 families.

Being such a small community, the Nicaraguan kehila had no cases of discrimination against the Jew. In Nicaragua there is no official or public anti-Semitism.
