Ieud (Hungarian: Jód, Yiddish: יועד) is a commune in Maramureş County in northern Romania. The commune is situated in the central part of Maramureş County, on the banks of the Ieudişor, a tributary of the Iza River. It is composed of a single village, Ieud.

History[edit]

The commune was first mentioned in 1391 in a manuscript called the Codicele de la Ieud. This was found in Ieud's Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God.[2] The church is the oldest of eight Wooden Churches of Maramureş that are listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.[3]
