The Early History of the Jews in Darlington Part 1.

The text of Harold Pollins's fascinating and most scholarly article may be read on the website of JCR-UK Darlington, http://www.jewishgen.org/jcruk/community/darling/Darlington_early_history.htm.

 DHC is immensely grateful to Mr Pollins for his work on the history of their community .

“The Hebrew Community of Darlington in County Durham is interesting for various reasons. First, the most important, is that despite being small it has survived and continues to flourish………… Secondly, in the late 20th century it changed, almost overnight, from being an Orthodox congregation to one of Reform.” (Harold Pollins, 2017)
