The Scottish Jewish Archives Centre preserves and displays the records of the Jewish experience in Scotland over the past 200 years and more.

The Centre is based in Garnethill Synagogue and houses a display on the history of Jews in Scotland.  A newsletter is published twice yearly and we have a Facebook page and a Twitter account.

We have regular special events and Open Days. Individual and group visits are available by appointment.

SJAC is currently involved, in partnership with Garnethill Synagogue Preservation Trust, in creating a Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre in Garnethill Synagogue.

The project will include the creation of a Scottish Holocaust Era Study Centre as a development of the Archives Centre.
