Welcome to the website of the Aberdeen
Hebrew Congregation! We are a Jewish community based in Aberdeen, serving
the Grampian region and the North East of Scotland. Although our numbers
may be small, we are a thriving community; sadly without 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
families and friends.
Please take a moment to
browse our newly updated website! For those who are looking for the
old-style pages, please follow the links to the left (the old pages will
remain on the server for as long as we have the space). Any queries
regarding the site may be directed to the webmaster. For other
queries and information, please see our Contacts
Thank you for
visiting! !הכל טוב

|There are various events taking place in Aberdeen for Holocaust Memorial Day. Please see our events page for full details.
Every year the world falls silent to honour those who lost their lives in one of the most terrible and truly tragic moments of the Twentieth Century and through prayer and meditation mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
Following last year’s moving and memorable event, the University of Aberdeen will again host a tribute to commemorate all those who suffered and died.
This year’s program will again be led by Professor Paul Mealor and include music from the University Chamber Choir and an instrumental performance. Professor Christopher Fynsk will read and talk about a letter from Robert Antelme to a friend, written just three weeks after his liberation from a death camp and there will be an address as well as a musical performance in Hebrew.
