Town of Leamington Spa

Leamington Spa (in the county of Warwickshire), a spa town on the river Leam with about 45,000 inhabitants, is now part of the local government district of Warwick. This was formed in 1974 by the merger of the municipal borough of Royal Leamington Spa with adjoining areas (including the municipal borough of Warwick).

Jewish Community

Although there were a number of Jewish families in Leamington and Warwick in the mid-nineteenth century, it appears that no formal Jewish congregation was established until the formation of a progressive Jewish congregation in Leamington in the 1990s. Warwick also had a Jewish community in the medieval period.
