Scottish Jewish Archives Centre

Charity description

Scottish Jewish Archives Centre logo
Ticket sales have now begun for the coming year's 200 Club. If you would like to buy tickets for the next year of our 200 Club which will run from September 2017 to August 2018, please use the Forthcoming events link on this page to make the donation for tickets @ £15 each rather than the Donate Now button at the top of this page so that we can clearly identify what your donation is for.

If you would simply like to make a straightforward donation to help us carry out our work or would like to become a Friend of the Archives (£15 per person or £20 for a joint membership) then use the Donate Now button.

Thank you.

The Scottish Jewish Archives Centre aims to document and illustrate the religious, organisational, social, economic, political, cultural and family life of Jews in Scotland since the eighteenth century. It provides a research facility and an educational resource for the Jewish, and also the wider community, in order to heighten awareness of the Jewish heritage in Scotland and to stimulate study of the history of the Jews in this country.

The Centre collects a wide range of material, and its large collection includes old synagogue minute books and registers, membership lists, over 6,000 photographs, oral history recordings, annual reports of many communal organisations, a small library of books of Scottish Jewish interest, friendly society regalia, personal papers, war medals, ceremonial keys, newspapers, magazines, trophies, plaques, paintings and sculptures.

These collections are documented, preserved and exhibited for the benefit of the general public.

Charity No: SC030542
