A Jewish community developed in Preston towards the end of the nineteenth century and reached its peak by the end of World War II. Thereafter it began to decline and the synagogue closed in the 1980s. However, in 2014, the Lancashire and Cumbria Liberal Jewish Congregation was formed, which frequently holds services in Preston.
