Scottish Council of Jewish Communities – SCoJeC
Updated 1 April 2020
“Col Yisrael arevim zeh lazeh” Our responsibility as a Jewish Community is to take care of one another.
|SCoJeC shares the anxiety of the whole Jewish community regarding the consequences of the COVID 19 virus. We have never in living memory been obliged to confront such a radical change in our way of life and normal systems for getting things done. For the first time in living memory, our institutions such as Jewish Care Scotland and the synagogues have closed their doors and it is no longer possible to go to these buildings to receive services.
However, despite all the uncertainty, fear, and confusion, as a community we have to be there for each other.
|Full contact details for local communities, synagogues, and communal organisations, are available from the Guide to Jewish Facilities in Scotland.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we want your questions so that we know what the community’s concerns are, and how we can best respond.
If you are able to volunteer or offer any other assistance during this challenging time, or if you would like us to list any information or online activities on these pages, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
