ANDORRA - THE JEWISH COMMUNITY

Andorra, a small landlocked country in the Pyrenees between France and Spain, serves as a tourist destination and a tax haven, and many  foreigners have established homes there. The Jewish history and culture of Andorra was practically nonexistent after the expulsion of  the Jews from the Iberian peninsula in the 1490s. In the 19th century, Jews were again permitted to enter.  Today an estimated one hundred reside there.
