In 1913, Havrot-Lina and Bikur Holim societies were functioning. A public library was opened. During WWI, the community were attacked by the Cossacks and Circassian army. The Jewish population reached 1,139 (76,6% of the total population) in 1921. In June 1942, 920 Jews were inhabitants of the town. On October 22, 1942, the Jews were expelled to the Sokal ghetto, and later to the Belzec death camp.
