Spanish & Portuguese Jews' Congregation

Categories: Community / Clubs, Religion

Countries: Portugal, Spain

Initially called 'sha'arhashamayim', the Gate of Heaven, this was the first professing Jewish community in the British Isles to be established in modern times (following the expulsion) and formed the origin of the present Jewish community of Britain as a whole. They established the first synagogue in Creechurch Lane and the first cemetery at Mile End. The Creechurch Lane building was replaced in 1701 with the present synagogue at Bevis Marks.
