Chapter Summary

The fate of Jews who resided on the estates of Polish magnates is one of the most extensively studied topics in historical studies of Polish- Lithuanian Jewry. This chapter introduces a new group of sources to this discussion. These new sources focus on central Poland, where social differentiation between magnates and the upper szlachta was relatively blurred. The 1758-1762 assessment lists for the Jewish poll tax in the Lublin regional council include the following subheading: "According to the assessment of the elders of Nowemiasto of the estates of His Highness Mr. Kazimierz Granowski, Voivode of Rawa". The subheading is followed by annual lists of the poll tax paid by the Jews of the eleven towns and forty-five villages of this estate. This document, which includes five lists, is the only one of its kind to have been found and is unique among Jewish poll tax lists.

Keywords: Jewish poll tax; Kazimierz Granowski; Nowemiasto; Polish- Lithuanian Jewry; Voivode of Rawa
