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. Or you can now join us online!
Thank you for visiting! !הכל טוב
Yom HaShoah is the Jewish communities time to reflect together, remember, and educate about the 6 million Jewish lives that were lost in the Holocaust.

In February, we had some of our windows refurbished - see the finished project on our Gallery Page!
The Shul sometimes holds services at 6:00pm on Friday evenings for Maariv. Please email the webmaster in advance if you wish to attend, as there may not necessarily be a planned or led service, or services may be led by a woman.
The next Shabbat Sacharis service will be at 10:00am on Saturday, 7 May 2016, followed by Kiddush.
