Canvey Island Jewish Community
There was a Jewish congregation on Canvey Island, which was in existance for a few years in the 1930s. In 2016, a new Jewish community was established on the island, when seven Ultra-Orthodox families from the Satmar Chasidic sect from the Stamford Hill area of North London moved to the area.
