Slovenia is home to 100 Jews, of both Ashkenazi and Sephardi descent. Slovenian Jewry is well organized and participates in numerous facets of Slovenian society, including political and cultural life. Since the year 2000, there has been a noticeable revival of Jewish culture in Slovenia with several public events organized by the Slovenian Jewish community and well-received by the general public. Moreover, there has recently been a growing public interest in the Jewish historical legacy in Slovenia. The Jewish community in Slovenia is represented by the Jewish Community of Slovenia (JCS) – the Slovenian affiliate of the World Jewish Congress.
