NEWPORT’S Jewish community is among the smallest in the UK, now counting just six members.
Members of the synagogue in Newport have said they have not been able to hold a service in over a year because of the low figures.
The community, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2012, used to meet in a synagogue in Queen’s Hill but moved after they could no longer afford to run it.
