Town of Ammanford
Ammanford (in Welsh: Rhydaman), a town on the river Amman in south Wales, has a population of about 5,000. It lies about 17 miles north of Swansea.
Until 1974, it formed the urban district of Ammanford in the county of Carmarthenshire. From 1974 until 1996, it was part of the district of Dinefwr in the newly-formed county of Dyfed. In 1996, Dinefwr was merged with neighbouring authorities to form the reconstituted county of Carmarthenshire, a unitary authority (within the ceremonial, or preserved, county of Dyfed)).
Ammanford Jewish Community
There are reports of Jewish residents in the town from, at least, 1916 until the late 1950s, although, accordoring to G. Alderman "Into the Vortex" (p.2) a synagogue was never built.
