The Ipswich Jewish Community
There was a Jewish community in Ipswich in medieval times. In modern times, there was a synagogue, sometimes referred to as the Ipswich Old Jewish Congregation, by 1792, and a cemetery was purchased in 1796. By the 1890s the community had disappeared. Recently a Liberal Jewish congregation has been formed.
