Thanks for all your help. I know about the kahal, and their use in filling army quotas. It's not pleasant history, but it's true.

Jewish community in Hamina, Finland
My grandfather said he was born in Hamina, Finland. Does anyone know if there was a Jewish community in Hamina, Finland? Do you know if Hamina was a Russian territory or a Finnish territory in 1878, when he was born?
