Parshah פרשת


This week we read Beshalach פרשת בשלח

Our Parshah page contains links to other, external sites.

Welcome to the website of the Aberdeen Hebrew Congregation! We are a traditional Synagogue in the centre of Aberdeen, serving the Grampian region and the North East of Scotland. Although our numbers may be small, we are a thriving community.  We don't have a permanent rabbi, but we do host a series of social, cultural and religious events throughout the year. Visitors are always welcome to our shul, and indeed on many occasions visitors have helped us make a minyan.


Jewish life in Aberdeen can be difficult at times, but it is also very interesting and rewarding. Our shul is the cornerstone of spiritual life for many of our local Jewish and non-Jewish families and friends.


Our shul and website receive no external funding and are staffed entirely by volunteers.  Emails and queries will be answered, but please be patientAny queries regarding the site may be directed to the webmaster. For other queries and information, or to be added to our mailing list, please contact the information office.


Thank you for visiting! !הכל טוב


Our website is currently undergoing major reconstructive work and new parts are being added back to it every day.  Please call back again soon!  If you have any queries meantime, please contact our Information Office or the Webmaster.
