Check the website for dates each month the archives are open
- Anyone with a serious interest in Jewish history in Scotland or indeed social history in general will be fascinated by the contents of these archives. The center is housed in Garnethill Synagogue, which opened in 1879 and is the oldest in the country. The collection includes mounted displays as well as the historical database of Scottish Jewry, which has information on more than 16,000 people, making it a valuable source for those who are trying to trace their roots. It's only open by prior arrangement so phone before you visit.
