Cambridge Jewish Community
City of Cambridge
The university city of Cambridge, situated in the east of England on the river Cam, has a population of over 100,000. It was a municipal borough until 1974, when it became a local government district of the administrative county of Cambridgeshire.
The Cambridge Jewish Community
There had been a medieval Jewish community in Cambridge. Jews had began to resettle in Cambridge by the mid-eighteenth century and the town is believed to have had an organised community prior to the end of that century. However, the community did not continue long into the nineteenth century and was defunct by the 1830s. It was then re-established in the 1840s.
