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. We are completely
independent and not affiliated to any national organisation of Synagogues, or Institutes. Emails
and queries will be answered, but please be patient. Queries or
comments regarding the website may be directed to the webmaster; for other queries and information, or to be added to our mailing
list, please contact the information office.
There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting on 4 October 2015 at 10:00
There will be a vote taken on the future of AHC remaining a) in it's current legal
format and b) in the present Synagogue building. In accordance with our Constitution, votes will be restricted to full members only. If you have not renewed your
membership, and want a say in the future of AHC, you need to renew your membership now. Please contact the Information
Office or the Webmaster if you have any questions.
Thank you for visiting! !הכל טוב
