The Towns of Amersham & Chesham
Amersham and Chesham are adjacent towns in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, in south central England, with populations of about 17,000 and 21,000, respectively. Though some distance from London, they are connected to the London Underground system.
In 1974 the Chesham Urban District and the Amersham Rural District (both formed in 1894) were merged to form the local government District of Chiltern. This on 1 April 2020 was merged with all other local authorities in Buckinghamshire, other than Milton Keynes, to form the unitary authority of the Buckinghamshire Council.
The Jewish Community in Amersham and Chesham
The first Jewish community was founded during World War II, by families evacuated from London, which lasted into the 1960's. Subsequently a Liberal congregation was established.
