Town of Rhyl
Rhyl (in Welsh: Y Rhyl) is a seaside town with a population of about 25,000. It lies on the northern coast of Wales facing the Irish Sea, close to the mouth of the river Clwyd and abot 45 miles west of Liverpool.
Until 1974, it formed the urban district of Rhyl in the county of Flintshire. From 1974 until 1996, it was part of the district of Rhuddlan in the then newly-formed county of Clwyd. In 1996, Clwyd was abolished as an administrative county and the district of Rhuddlan became part of the newly re-formed county of Denbighshire, a unitary authority, though somewhat smaller than the original county of Denbighshire (within the ceremonial, or preserved, county of Clwyd).
Rhyl Jewish Community
There are reports of Jewish residents in Bangor from at least the 1890s until the 1950s, the town only synagogue having been established in the 1890s.
