Within our Community there are numerous organisations and societies which provide a diverse range of activities for the Jewish population of Edinburgh.

The Synagogue itself, and the Community Centre, which is located in the same building, form the principal focus for Jewish communal life in Edinburgh (Click here for some photos.)
