The History of Jewish Cork — As Told By YouTube

Browsing through YouTube recently, I came across several videos telling the story of Jewish Cork. I’m embedding these here into one article as many remain interested in the Jewish narrative in Ireland. (I recently covered the subject here and on Times of Israel. Link below)

Other Videos

In this video, George from Ireland — Reflections shoots a video outlining the history of the community in front of the former synagogue on South Terrace. The synagogue was deconsecreated, and closed for Jewish worship, in early 2016.

Walking Tours

When Jews arrived in Cork, many of them settled in Jewtown (Hibernian Terrace) — located just a few hundred meters from the synagogue on South Terrace. The area is still known by that appellation to some older Cork residents.

Jewish Ireland Videos

In addition to videos about Cork’s Jewish community, there are videos on YouTube about Ireland’s Jewish community and the Jewish experience in Ireland. Here are some of them.
