The Jews of Leeds in 2001: A Portrait of a Community

By Stanley Waterman

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), 2003

This report uses the results of surveys undertaken by the JPR in concert with the results of the 2001 Census of England and Wales to build a profile about the Jewish population in Leeds. The study finds that compared to the Jewish population in London, Jews in Leeds appear to be more closely-knit, homogeneous and residentially concentrated, less educated and more traditional. The report concludes that stronger efforts need to be made to reach out to the Jewish population in Leeds, which lacks a lot of the support that Jews in other locales have. The report adds that there will be a greater responsibility on the part of planners, decision-makers, major contributors and charities to become aware of the issues facing this community.
