Communities and Records - United Kingdom
The aim of this website is to record details of all Jewish communities and congregations that have ever existed in the United Kingdom, as well as in the Republic of Ireland and Gibraltar, in order to preserve the information for posterity. Currently this website contains some 5,000 pages including details of more than 1,200 Jewish congregations.
We need your help to expand
the details of the various communities and congregations (whether Ashkanazi or Sephardi, Ultra-Orthodox, Orthodox, Masorti, Reform or Liberal), current or no longer in existence. If
you can assist by providing community or congregational information
and/or genealogical data/lists, or merely correcting or completing
certain details of a particular community or congregation, please
A joint project between the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain and JewishGen.
