Plymouth Synagogue Plymouth - Review

The oldest Ashkenazi Jew synagogue in the English world, this is a grade II listed building dating back to 1762. The whitewashed building in brick and stone with a Cornish slate roof continues to be a praying spot for Jews since the 18th century. The baroque Tohark Ark rising two stories in height and featuring fluted Corinthian columns, broken pediment, carved finials and urns in gold leaf are worth observing.

The building appears like a structure belonging to the nonconformist protestant and is believed to be designed in such a way to avoid the destruction from the riots that happened against the non-Anglican houses of worship in 18th century.

Plymouth Synagogue Plymouth, Plymouth Reviews

  • I was part of a group who were given a tour today by the custodian, Jerry Sibley. It was a fascinating experience and well worth the visit. Jerry gave us a warm welcome with tea, coffee and kosher cake and, over the next couple of hours, gave us a very informative insight into the history of the synagogue, its surroundings and the Jewish community.

  • Beautiful synagogue with a fascinating history. If you can go on a tour (email the caretaker, Jerry), I highly, highly recommend it. Jerry's tour is incredibly interesting and well-researched, and gives an excellent overview of not only the history of Plymouth and the Jews who lived there, but Jewish life in England during different periods. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a visit!

  • Fascinating place
