City of Bangor
Bangor is a small cathedral city in north Wales, with a population of about 19,000. It lies at the northern entrance to the Menai Strait from the Irish Sea, opposite the isle of Anglesey, about 70 miles due west of Liverpool.
Until 1974, it formed the municipal borough of Bangor in the county of Caernarvonshire. From 1974 until 1996, it was part of the district of Arfon in the then newly-formed county of Gwynedd. In 1996, the county of Gwynedd was reduced in size and became a unitary authority (and a ceremonial, or preserved, county).
Bangor Jewish Community
There are reports of Jewish residents in Bangor from at least the 1870s until the 1950s, the town's only synagogue having been established in the 1890s.
