City of Hereford
The historic city of Hereford, in the English West Midlands, close the the Welsh border, lies on the river Wye and has a population of about 50,000. It was a municipal borough within the county of Herefordshire until 1974, when it became a local government district within the newly created county of Hereford and Worcester. In 1998, the county of Herefordshire was reconstituted and became a unitary authority, the city of Hereford accordingly losing its administrative status.
Only one Jewish congregation, the Herefordshire Jewish Community, is known to have existed in Hereford in modern times, although there was a medieval Jewish community.
