Summary

Birmingham Central Synagogue is an Orthodox synagogue situated in Edgbaston, Birmingham. The Ashkenazi Orthodox community was established in a private house in Belgrave Road in 1883 before moving to Wrottesley Street in 1900 and then to Bristol Street in 1928, taking over a former Methodist Hall. In 1961 a small group of dedicated, hard working individuals acquired the large plot of land upon which the current Synagogue, hall and classrooms now stand.
