Scottish Jewish Heritage Centre to open in 2019

Scotland is to get its first Jewish Heritage Centre, thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £296,900.

The centre, a joint initiative between the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre (http://www.sjac.org.uk) and the Garnethill Synagogue Preservation Trust (GSPT), is to be based at Garnethill Synagogue in Glasgow, and will cost about £500,000. Work on the new Centre is to start this month, with the launch and opening scheduled for summer 2019.
