Calderdale was a metropolitan borough in the metropolitan county of West Yorkshire in the North of England. It was formed in 1974 from the merger of a number of local authorities, all of which had been part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, and took its name from the river Calder, whose upper part runs through the borough, several of its tributaries forming a number of small valleys.   In 1986, Calderdale became a unitary authority when West Yorkshire lost its administrative status and became purely a ceremonial county. The borough comprises an number of towns, including Halifax (dealt with separately), Hebden Bridge, Brighouse, Elland, Sowerby Bridge and Todmorden.

Jewish Community

There is no evidence of an organised Jewish community in the area that is today Calderdale, other than in Halifax (see separately), until well into the twenty-first century upon the founding of the Caldervale Jewish Community Centre.
