Reading Jewish Community

Town of Reading

Reading, on the confluence of the river Thames and river Kennet in southeast England, has a population of about 145,000.  It was a county borough until 1974, when it became a local government district and the county town of the county of Berkshire. In 1998, the renamed borough of Reading became a unitary authority, when Berkshire lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.  Tilehurst is a suburb of Reading, falling partly within the Borough of Reading, and partly within the adjoining unitary authority of West Berkshire.
