As per Lenius' Gazatteer, there were several Zawoj in what was Historic Galicia Province, Austro-Hungarian Empire, in both what is Poland and Ukraine today.

Zawoj > Kalusz was both powiat (county) and gmina (judicial/tax district) > was predominantly GC village w/its own GC Church. The RC Church was in Podmichale. Today Ivano Frankivska region > Ukraine. Jewish kahal not listed, but a Jewish site lists Kalusz is where the filial kahal was located. LDS has not filmed Jewish Records for Kalusz, however there are lists of members of Jewish kahal for Kalusz @ Ivano-Frankivska oblast Archives. Once you establish that you have the correct ancestral kahal, there are other metrykal (vital records like birth available). Holocaust records for Kalusz can be obtained in Warsaw @ Jewish Historical Institute.
