Thanks for that. The one you mention is the old one in Pill. The (new) one is Queens Hill is now a nursery. I have booklet about the last Jews in the South Wales Valleys written recently. Is there a history of the Jews in Wales that you know of. There are very few left now and mostly they are elderly.

"Few minority communities saw greater change than Harry’s beloved Jewish community. It flourished and grew from the time of his birth in 1915."

There was a Jewish community in Newport far earlier than 1915, Paul. The Newport Synagogue building actually dates from 1859. Swansea is home to the oldest community of Welsh Jews, the historical records of which go back to the 1760s.
