Bournemouth & Poole Jewish Community
The Jewish Community
The Bournemouth Jewish community dates back to about 1905, and is one of the larger communities in the UK, partly due to its appeal as a retirement resort. The town was also very popular as a Jewish holiday resort and, at one time, boasted quite a number of kosher hotels, of which only one remains (see Bournemouth Jewish Hotels Consigned to History as Normandie Battles On). A number of Jews also now live in Poole, which forms single conurbation with Bournemouth. The Bournemouth & District Jewish Representation Council covers a somewhat wider area including Southampton.
