Coventry Jewish Community

City of Coventry

Coventry, with a population of about 300,000, is the ninth largest city in England.  The metropolitan borough of Coventry was created in 1974, within the then new metropolitan county of West Midlands.  Coventry became a unitary authority in 1986, when West Midlands lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial and geographical county.  Until 1974, Coventry was a county borough and part of the county of Warwickshire.

The Coventry Jewish Community

There was a medieval Jewish community in Coventry. In modern times, Jews first settled in Coventry during that latter part of the eighteenth century, although it was not until the early part of the nineteenth century that a formal congregation was established.
