Sabbath Evening Prayer Book

For nearly two centuries the Jewish Community has lived in Wolverhampton and worshipped, first in Horseley Fields, then from 1856, in Fryer Street. The burial ground in Cockshutt Lane dates at least from 1836. Once over one hundred families, the community is now so small that they must go to Birmingham to worship. The Fryer Street Synagogue, home of Wolverhampton's oldest minority faith, has sadly closed.

Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. (Psalm 133)


Hear O Israel: the LORD our GOD, the LORD is ONE. (Deut. 6: 4-9)
