The beginning of the Jewish community in Diedelsheim, a district of the city of Bretten in the district of Karlsruhe (Baden-Württemberg), goes back to the 16th century.
In the year 1548 Jews are mentioned in Diedelsheim for the first time. Until the beginning of the 19th century, the Jewish families lived primarily in the Judengaeßle. The highest number of Jewish residents was reached in 1864 with 118 people. As a result of the rural exodus that began in 1870. The Jewish community was officially dissolved in 1920 and the remaining members of the Jewish community were assigned to Bretten. The Jewish community of Diedelsheim had been a member of the district rabbinate of Bretten since 1827. Bretten belongs to Karlsruhe. The Jewish community had a synagogue, a religious school and a ritual bath (mikveh) in the synagogue building. The Jewish families lived from the trade in livestock, country products and goods of all kinds.
