Leeds Jews

Last updated: 2003-11-28

Jews have called Leeds home since around 1750 and it became a popular destination for those fleeing persecution in eastern Europe.

Leeds was also a place where Jewish tailors and others employed in the garment industry could pursue their profession. 

There are around 10,000 Jews living in Leeds.

The following is a list of Synagogues, kosher food suppliers and other communal groups and organisations in the Leeds area. If you group or shop is not listed, send an e-mail to: updates@somethingjewish.co.uk with your details.
