Jews' Court in Lincoln is the home of the Lincolnshire Jewish Community, a Grade I listed 14th century building located on Steep Hill in Lincoln, traditionally thought to be on the site of a Medieval Synagogue and the oldest synagogue in the British Isles. A Norman building above Jews House, dated between 1150 and 1180 and is probably the only standing medieval synagogue in England.
Lincoln was, in the Middle Ages, one of the most important of the English Jewish communities. Jews' Court is thought to have been used as a synagogue until the expulsion of the entire Jewish community from England in 1290.
It wasn't until 1992 when the Lincolnshire Jewish Community was founded and is now the only affiliated Synagogue in Lincoln.
Over the past 3 decades we have arranged many simcha's including, baby naming ceremonies, celebrated many conversions and are very proud to have recently held the first Batmitzvah at Jews' Court in 700 years!
We are also proud to be an integral part of Lincoln's interfaith movement.
