Dublin Jewish Community
City of Dublin
Dublin (Irish: Baile Átha Cliath) is the capital city of the Republic of Ireland and the largest city of Ireland, located nearly half way down the island’s east coast, at the mouth of the river Liffey. Although geographically part of County Dublin, the City of Dublin has had a separate administration for several centuries. Although the City of Dublin has a population of about half a million, there are well over one million people in the Greater Dublin area.
The Dublin Jewish Community
The Dublin Jewish Community would appear
to have been
established shortly following the readmission of the Jews in the 1660's, and is
thus the second oldest community in the British Isles. The first community
was of Spanish and Portuguese (Sephardi) origin, but these element died out and
were later replaced primarily by Ashkenazi Jews.
