An historic 19th century listed synagogue is the home for a new Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre which opened this week.

More than half-a-million pounds was invested in the site at Garnethill Synagogue in Glasgow, which will help to educate about the community’s 200-year-old Jewish history.

The project will offer access to archive collections, research material and it will tell the story of Jewish history and culture in Scotland.

It will also host school visits with a focus on telling the story of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany who found a safe haven in Glasgow.

It has been created through a partnership with the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre (SJAC), Garnethill Synagogue Preservation Trust (GSPT) and Garnethill Hebrew Congregation – all of which are based in the synagogue.
