Jewish Iceland

Traveling To Iceland?

Iceland has a small Jewish population numbering about 100 souls, there has never been an organized Jewish presence here, thus no Synagogues or Jewish sights to explore.

At Chabad Iceland we seek to promote and strengthen Jewish awareness, pride and observance in Iceland.
We strive to reach out to every Jew by providing a wide variety of educational, religious, and social services, our emphasis is on sharing the treasures of our tradition and affording every Jew the opportunity to experience his or her wonderful Jewish heritage.  

Due to budgeting concerns there is not yet a full time Minyan or Chabad House in Reykjavik, rather regular visits by Rabbi's around the Major Jewish Holidays. see below for a report of our latest visit.

 For any further Inquires regarding Kosher Food and Jewish Life in Iceland, or if you would like to make a donation to partner with us in serving the Jews of Iceland

Kosher Food

Kosher brands of Food are hard to find in Iceland, however being that almost all food items are imported, one can find many products from the US and UK with a kosher Certification on them, in the central supermarkets.
namely Hangkaup, Kronan, 10/11 and Noatun, there is also a wholesaler called Bonus which carry's many US products.
