Jews have lived and worshipped in Exeter for over 250 years. The synagogue, which was built in 1763, is small, beautiful and, happily, still used regularly for services. It has been carefully restored by successive generations, and has recently undergone another major restoration.

The synagogue, by its very existence and antiquity, forms a focal point for the Jewish identity of many Jews living in the South West, of a wide variety of backgrounds, persuasions and commitments.

Thousands of school-children visit the synagogue each year, for most of whom it is their first contact with Jews and Judaism. We actively promote inter-faith understanding.

The Congregation's ancient and picturesque cemetery is maintained at its expense, and provides a peaceful resting place for its members. It has a haunting beauty, enhanced by the Hebrew lettering of its ancient tombstones, that we are anxious to preserve sensitively for the future.
