When the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council (GJRC) was formed in 1914, it was to represent the Jewish community in Glasgow and the surrounding areas. GJRC helps to ensure cordial relations between the Jewish community and other civic and religious groups and sends delegates to a variety of faith and other forums and committees. GJRC, which is democratically elected, hosts a forum for religious, welfare, cultural, social, educational and youth organisations. It liaises with these bodies to ensure the effective running of the community.

The current GJRC Co-presidents are Nicola Livingston and Evy Yedd.

The treasurer is Howard Singerman.
