The earliest mention of Przedecz is in the 12th century and at that period it was in the possession of Archbishops.
Przedecz was granted the right to be known as a city before the end of the 14th century.
Przedecz had only a few streets, but it had all the elements of a Jewish community: a synagogue, Bet Hamedrash, mikva, Jewish schools, a yeshiva, Jewish library, Jewish cemetery, eruv, welfare and cultural organisations.
