When the Glasgow Jewish Representative Council (GJRC) was formed in 1914, it was to represent the Jewish community in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
The Council 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.
The Glasgow Jewish Representative Council, 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.
