Walking Jewish History

The project is creating a digital Jewish heritage trail in English and Welsh. The trail will briefly tell the history of Cardiff Jewish communities through nearly fifty individual items. In addition to descriptions and pictures, the Trail will also include links to our collections on People’s Collection Wales and other websites.

 

There are still some mysteries we have been unable to solve. For example, we have been unable to find any information on the date of opening of Edward Place Synagogue (the forerunner of Windsor Place). Also, you may know the “1841” plaque outside Highfield cemetery. But do you know who put it up, when, and if that is its original position? Let us know if you can help!

We hope to go live soon!

Together with Cynon Valley Museum, we have also created a walking tour of Jewish businesses in Aberdare.
