Congregation Data


Dublin Hebrew Congregation

Former Names:

Terenure Hebrew Congregation

Rathmines Hebrew Congregation (until 1948)


32a Rathfarnham Road, Terenure, Dublin 6.

The congregation moved to the site on which synagogue is built (then known as "Leoville") on Rosh Hashana 1948. Until the completion of the building of the synagogue (which was dedicated on 30 August 1953), the congregation conducted services in a Nissen Hut on the site. The Hut was again used for services from 9 February 1966, as a result of the synagogue having been set on fire and badly damaged, until 26 May 1968, when the refurbished synagogue was dedicated.

Former Addresses:

52 Grosvenor Road, Rathmines, from April 1940 to Rosh Hashana 1948.
6 Grosvenor Road, Rathmines (rented rooms), from 1936 to April 1940


The present congregation, which is the principal Orthodox synagogue in Dublin, is the result of a merger, effected in December 2004, of the Terenure Hebrew Congregation with the Adelaide Road Hebrew Congregation (also known as the Dublin Hebrew Congregation), which for some years had been conducting its services at the Terenure Hebrew Congregation's building. The merged congregation assumed the name of the Dublin Hebrew Congregation.

Current Status:



Ashkenazi Orthodox

Membership Data:

1953 -   170 seatholders (Jewish Year Book 1954)
1955 -   200 seatholders (Jewish Year Book 1956)
1962 -   250 seatholders (Jewish Year Book 1963)
