Security, Accommodation and Integration: The “Law of the Land” and Jewish Privileges in Old Poland

Anat Vaturi

The article discusses royal privileges granted to the Jews in Old Poland and examines the jurisdiction over Jews from the new perspective of relations with Polish customary law—“Law of the Land.” More precisely, it analyzes the content and procedures of the clauses guaranteeing Jewish physical security and shows their connection with land law and the practice of district courts, a connection that contributed to the incorporation of the Jews into the Polish legal system and practice.
