I am currently working on a research project around The Old Jewish Cemetery with my colleague Ruth Mitchell. It must be said, regardless of who you are, Jerry is an amiable chap and an invaluable source of information. He is truly a valuable asset to the Synagogue. The Synagogue itself is a beautiful gem of a building, tucked away unnoticed... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. Do not miss it. Jerry spent an hour and half showing me round and talking about the history of the synagogue. Jerry's talk made history come alive and I will definitely return. Ann Kader

I have visited Plymouth Synagogue several times and have always been amazed at the beauty of it. The wonderful stained glass windows and the beautifully carved wood. The synagogue has the most wonderful sense of peace and is a real gem tucked away down a side street off Catherine Street.

I chanced upon the synagogue, and as instructed on a blackboard at the entrance, called Jerry for a tour. Jerry came over immediately, and proceeded to spend more than an hour of fascinating history and stories of the Jewish community in Plymouth. Do not pass over this unique experience!

the Plymouth Synagogue is a real hidden history for the city and Jerry the custodian is a hive of knowledge and tells his stories with great passion and energy. It is a cultural treasure as is the cemetery which was newly opened this year in the History Festival. I urge anyone interested in history both local or cultural to take... More

Jerry's knowledge is wide and varied and enthused with passion. A hidden gem amongst the hustle and bustle of Plymouth. A gem that needs to be celebrated. Well worth a visit!

Jerry gives an interesting, enthusiastic talk about the history of this lovely building and brings to life the Jewish community, their beliefs and traditions. This was my fourth visit and I still was not bored. My friends asked for a second visit to hear more. The two hours spent there was not enough.

Jerry, you are awesome. Thank you very much for showing us around the synagogue today. It definitely is one of the highlights of our trip. We loved all the history, the stories about the different people, the synagogue itself, the problems with keeping it going. The Jewish congregation is very lucky they have you to keep the candle burning. I... More

Our visit to the Plymouth Synagoge was heartwarming. TheJewish community of Plymouth has long and interesting history. Jerry the custodian manages to bring it all alive and the 250 year old synagogue looks beautiful. As a child my family were members of the community and the Synagogue was a regular part of our lives. Many years later revisiting I came... More

A group of 20 local people visited the Synagogue and were enthralled by the amount of information given to them about the history of the Jewish community in Plymouth. Jerry, the curator is so enthusiastic and has a vast knowledge of his subject. He was able to explain all about the beautiful artefacts within the Synagogue as well telling us... More
