Summary/Abstract: In this article the place and role of the Jewish community in Bulgaria in VII - XIV century are considered. The Jewish population is considered to be well accepted in the Bulgarian state territories during VII - XIV centuries. Gradually it has settled permanently in Bulgaria and at the same time Jewish communities have kept their specific free customs, religion, observances and common law. Some preconditions for the formation of their internal organization and management have been developed. Depending on various historical events, the numbers of such settlements have changed in time. In some areas they have disappeared, while in others such settlements have been newly established. Traditionally non-profit organizations, Jewish schools and the general fund have been operated by the municipalities.
