One part of the Bible published in this town.

In 1788, Minkowce became the possession of Polish noble Ignacy Marchocki.  One of Marchocki’s first reform acts was to abolish serfdom on his estate.   In 1792, the first Jewish printing houses were opened.  The printing continued until 1827 with the death of Marchocki.  During this period, more than forty books were published, ranging from prayer books, collections of psalms and slikhot, books of Tanakh and midrashes to kabbalah and hasidic books.

Minkowce is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Szudziałowo, within Sokółka County, Podlaskie Voivodeship, in north-eastern Poland, close to the border with Belarus. It lies approximately 10 kilometres (6 mi) north-east of Szudziałowo, 17 km (11 mi) east of Sokółka, and 48 km (30 mi) north-east of the regional capital Białystok.
