Sefton Jewish Community
Metropolitan Borough of Sefton
Sefton is a metropolitan borough in the county of Merseyside in the North West of England. It was created in 1974 upon the merger of several authorities (all then in the county of Lancashire), including the county borough of Bootle (population about 77,000, situated just to the north of Liverpool and considered part of its urban area), the urban district of Crosby (population about 50,000, situated to the north of Bootle and also generally considered part of Liverpool's urban area) and the county borough of Southport (population about 90,000, a seaside town further to the north). In 1986, Sefton became a unitary authority, when the metropolitan county of Merseyside lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.
The Sefton Jewish Community
There were Jewish communities and congregations in each of Southport, Bootle and Crosby, the three principal towns that today form metropolitan borough of Sefton.
