Albert Grove, Jewish Baths (Mikvah) (Little London) (1 comment)
Black & White image1956. Leeds Terrace is on the left and Albert Grove to the right. On the junction is the Jewish Women's Public Baths and two Mikvah baths. These resembled wide mouthed wells and were used for ritual cleansing observance. They were later leased by the Jewish community who took responsibility for them. The cost of the land and building was £2,400 and the baths opened in October 1905. In 1909/10 there were on average 800 attendances a month; by 1957 it was less than 40 a month. By then the building was in a poor state of repair and the area had generally deteriorated. The Jewish population had on the whole moved to areas in North Leeds. The Albert Grove baths closed finally on 5th January 1968. A new Mikvah was opened in November 1994 at the Etz Chaim Synagogue in Moortown.

Albert Grove, Jewish Baths (Mikvah) (Little London)
Black & White image1956. The Jewish Community in Leeds began to be established around 1840 and as the population grew provision was made for their religious needs. One of the obligations of a woman is cleansing herself at the Mikvah to obey the laws of family purity. As the Jewish community grew, the North Street/Camp Road area (in addition to the Leylands) became home to many. Building a Jewish Women's Public Baths in this area provided a necessary facility for many residents. This view shows Albert Grove with the junction with Leeds Terrace on the left.
