Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight is the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, some three to five miles off the southern English coast. It was part of the county of Hampshire until 1890, when it became an independent administrative county (though geographically still considered part of Hampshire). In 1974 it was reconstituted as a non-metropolitan ceremonial county and has been a unitary authority since 1994.
Although individual Jews are known to have lived on the Isle of Wight from the late eighteenth century, there is no knowledge of any organised community until the recent establishment of a Jewish Society.
