More About The Organisation
Bristol Hebrew Congregation is highly regarded as a small but very active community.
The community has a wide range of members pursuing a variety of occupations. It is close and supportive and welcomes potential new members.
Services are held each Shabbat, from 9.45am, and are followed by a kiddush. There are also services on all festivals, and occasional childrens’ services.
The aim of “JCR-UK” is to record in electronic format genealogical and other community related information about UK Jewish communities (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands) and make this information freely available via the Internet
Bring together Jewish genealogy researchers and existing groups with a common interest in the UK
Provide a forum for the dissemination of information about research methods and records in the UK
Organize a group to enable agreements with archives that will benefit both the researchers and the archives
Develop a searchable UK database using records from official and unofficial sources (births, deaths, marriages, immigration data, trade directories, synagogue membership list, donors to charities) subject to any data protection issues
Share any information collected with related projects (e.g. JewishGen Worldwide Burial Registry, JewishGen Yizkor Book Project)
Establish community web pages for the UK under one umbrella
