Fraga

City in Aragon. In 1328 Alfonso IV. confirmed all the privileges which the Moncadas had granted to the Jews of Fraga. Four years later he permitted his second wife, Leonora, to whom he had presented Huesca and Fraga, to admit sixJewish families to Fraga. The Jews are said to have been persecuted there in 1389 and 1391. In 1438 the Jewish community was still as large as that in Jaca, and, like it, paid 200 sueldos annually in taxes. Fraga was the birthplace of the baptized physician Astruc Remoch. Isaac Arama served for several years as a preacher in Fraga.
