JEWS.

The Jewish community which settled in Stroud to work in the wholesale clothing trade had a synagogue near the junction of Lansdown and Slad Road, just within Painswick parish, from c. 1880. In 1889 a new synagogue was opened (fn. 1) on the northwest side of Lansdown nearer the town; (fn. 2) it apparently went out of use c. 1908. (fn. 3)
