Market square, Siemiatycze 1910.

The first documents connected with the Jewish settlement date back to 1582. However, the date of establishing the kehilla remains unspecified; two dates appear in sources – 1667 and 1691. Despite establishing structures of a Jewish community, the Jews living in Siematycze were under administrative authority of Tykocin’s community until the mid 18th century.
