Jewish settlement in Slonim appears to have started in 1388, following encouragement from the Lithuanian authorities. They were credited with the development of local commerce in the 15th century, nonetheless, they were temporarily expelled by the Lithuanian Duchy in 1503. In the late 19th century, Slonim's Jewish population had risen to more than 10,000. The Slonimer Hasidic dynasty (Slonim (Hasidic dynasty)) came from there. Michael (Michael Marks) and Ephraim Marks (of Marks & Spencer) were born in Slonim. The wealthiest family in Slonim before WW2, were the Rabinowicz brothers Vigdor and Yossel. Their father Dovber Rabinowicz was married to a Rivka Rochel (née Kancepolski). After WW1, they entered the forestry business together with Yaakov Milikowski, and were known as the Rabmils. They escaped the Nazi atrocities by flying to Israel ( Palestine (Mandatory Palestine) at the time.) Vigor's son, Professor Raviv, became a world famous Computer scientist. In 1971, after spending a sabbatical year in Israel and talking with the late David Cohen, General Manager of IBM-Israel at that time, Raviv convinced IBM management to begin a research and development activity in Haifa, Israel. Under his dynamic and respected leadership, this research center, that began as an attachment to the Technion Institute, eventually employed 300 people. Economy Slonim's importance derives from the river, which is navigable and joins the Oginsky canal, connecting the Niemen (Neman River) with the Dnieper (Dnieper River). Slonim has varied food, consumer, and engineering industries. Corn, tar, and especially timber are exported. There is the Slonim artistic goods factory, a worsted factory and “Textilschik”, a paperboard factory, a motor- and a car repair plants, dry non-fat milk factory and meat processing plant. There are also flax preprocessing, feed mill and woodworking enterprises in the town. The 11th Guards Mechanized Brigade, withdrawn from Germany in 1992, is stationed in the town.
