Our community is based in Jews Court on Steep Hill in Lincoln city.

A book shop is downstairs and the synagogue is located on the first floor and has been for the past 23 years.
Jews Court is a Grade I listed 14th century building located on Steep Hill in Lincoln.
Traditionally thought to be on the site of a Medieval Synagogue, the oldest in the British Isles.
A Norman building immediately above Jew’s House, dated between 1150 and 1180 and is probably the only standing medieval synagogue in England.
It is thought to have been used as a synagogue until the expulsion of the entire Jewish community from England in 1290.

The Lincoln(shire) Jewish Community was founded in 1992 and is now the only Synagogue in Lincoln, holding regular Shabbat and Erev Shabbat services supported by our wonderful Cantor/Rabbi.
