Encyclopedia Judaica: Albi, France

ALBI, town in France. The church council held at Albi in 1254 issued a number of canons (63–70) embodying anti-Jewish restrictive measures. One or two Jewish families resided in Albi toward the end of the 13th century. A few settled there after 1315 without authorization from the local authorities. In 1320 several were massacred by the *Pastoureaux . Subsequently Jews were only permitted to enter Albi in transit on payment of a toll of 12 deniers. In 1967 there were approximately 70 Jews in Albi, mainly of North African origin.
