There were Jews in Insming since the early 18th century. The synagogue,  built around 1820 in the style of the Empire style, with triangular pediment and gable, was damaged in 1942. The synagogue was reopened after the war and worked until 1977.   For lack of followers, it was decommissioned in 1989 and restoration work were too great.

Insming is situated about 60 km southeast of Metz, about 80 km northeast of Nancy, and about 100 km northwest of Strasbourg. Its altitude is 215 meters minimum and 273 meters maximum. It is part of the canton d'Albestroff, which is part of the "arrondissement" of Château-Salins.
Since the eighth century, Insming has been known under different names: Asmangia, Esminga, Amange, and Ensmingen. It is the oldest village of the canton of Albestroff. In the 12th century, it was the headquarter of a priesthood dependent on Saint-Mihiel Abbey, which was founded at the end of the 11th century. Insming was a small dependence of Counts de Ferrettes and de Montbeliard.

After World War II, Insming saw an economic boom, mainly thanks to Fernand Lambert, who was its mayor from 1945 to 1977. He inaugurated the first high school in the Moselle department after the war.
