Jews were first given the right to permanent settlement in British Gibraltar in 1749 and there has been a Jewish presence on the island ever since. During the evacuation of Gibraltar in WWII many of the island’s Jewish inhabitants came to the United Kingdom and whilst some returned other chose to remain in the UK. 

The community has always been predominantly Sephardi and has notably faced remarkably little antisemitism throughout its history on the island. There is currently a small but thriving Jewish community in Gibraltar.
