It is not known exactly when Jews settled in Jedlińsk. We know that, in the 18th century, there was an already well-organised community there. As there was no separate Jewish Community Council here, the local Jews belonged to the Gmina in Radomsko. However, the JedlińsK Jews had their own , at ul. Warszawska 6. The same street also contained the Jewish .

According to a 1921 register, Jews comprised half of Jedlińsk's inhabitants - 762 out of a total of 1,490.

Following the outbreak of World War II and the German occupation of Poland, a ghetto was set up in Jedlińsk. Around one thousand Jews were imprisoned there, including the Jewish residents of Przytyk. The ghetto was liquidated in August 1942. The Germans murdered the old and the sick on the spot. The remaining ghetto inhabitants were transported to Białobrzeg, and then sent to the Treblinka extermination camp.
