Bristol Jewish Community
City of Bristol
Bristol, the major city of the West of England with a population of about 400,000, is situated near the eastern end of the Bristol Channel and has a short coast line along the southern coast of the channel, facing Wales. Bristol is unique in having been a city with county status since medieval times (it was named a county borough when the term was created in 1889), with only a short break, from 1974 to 1996, when it became a local government district of the short-lived county of Avon. It regained its independence and county status in 1996, when the county of Avon was abolished and Bristol became a unitary authority.
There had been a
Jewish community in Bristol. In modern times, Bristol has had a Jewish presence since at least the 1740's.
