Bevis Marks Synagogue in the City of London is the oldest synagogue in Britain. It bears witness to the stability of Jewish life in England since the Cromwellian Resettlement of 1656, since when Jews have enjoyed uninterrupted residence and freedom of worship in this country, a track-record unrivalled anywhere else in Europe. Indeed, Anglo-Jewry occupies the status of England’s oldest non-Christian faith community. Today the importance of the Jewish Built Heritage is acknowledged and funded by the conservation world, in England and abroad.
