THE PLYMOUTH Synagogue has been named as one of the top ten synagogues in the UK.

(Are they joking? It is the only Synagogue  in Plymouth)

Ten of the finest synagogues in Britain have been nominated for the European Routes of Jewish Heritage, Jewish Heritage UK has announced.

Plymouth Synagogue is the oldest Ashkenazi synagogue in Britain and oldest in the English-speaking world.

Built in 1762-3, a year before Exeter Synagogue (1763-4), both now 250 years old.

Apparently this item was also in the Jewish Chronicle in a different format.
