City of Worcester
The historic city of Worcester lies on the river Severn in the English West Midlands and has a population of over 90,000. It was a county borough in the county of Worcestershire until 1974, when it became a local government district, initially within the relatively short-lived county of Hereford and Worcester and, from 1998, within the newly reconstituted county of Worcestershire.
Worcester Jewish Community
Although there was a medieval Jewish community in Worcester, the modern Jewish community was not established until the 1940s, when a Synagogue Group was established by World War II evacuees.
