The Jewish community of Puttelange built a synagogue as early as 1736 , one of the oldest in the Duchy of Lorraine . The successor building was built in the oriental style in 1867 and destroyed in 1940. The Jewish community had belonged to the Israelite consistorial district of Metz since 1808 .


The Puttelange Jewish cemetery is opposite the school.
