It's a hit! - in fact half a million hits!

January 2013

Did you visit SCoJeC’s website last year, perhaps to read back issues of Four Corners, participate in our Being Jewish in Scotland project, find out about events taking place around Scotland, use the interactive Jewish Way of Life teaching resource, or look something up in the Guide to Jewish Facilities in Scotland? If so you weren’t alone, as the website received more than half a million ‘hits’ in 2012 (557 433 to be precise!), and, we’re delighted that you’ve taken the time to tell us, amongst other praise, that it’s “very interesting and impressive”, “superb!”, “comprehensive and easy to use”.

Many people have the site bookmarked, but others find their way there through a wide variety of searches ranging from “Jewish community in Scotland” and “Jewish way of life” to “Jews in Kirkgunzeon”, and even “why do scottish jews only have irn bru till 13”! (don’t worry – we know of many Jewish people who continue to enjoy it much later in life!!).

Others keep up with new information by keeping an eye on New on Site, signing up for our rss feed ‘liking’ our facebook page or following us on twitter.

Popular pages include:

MEMO, our weekly overview of information of interest to minority ethnic communities in Scotland, including parliamentary activity at Holyrood and Westminster, new publications, consultations, forthcoming conferences and news reports;

the wealth of information available on our Resources page, which, amongst other publications, includes Scotland’s Jews, a five-year calendar of Jewish festival dates, Scottish Jewry in the 2001 census, and a Practical guide for employers and Jewish employees;

the News pages;

the Noticeboard of events of Jewish interest taking place all over Scotland – do let us know if you’re putting on an event, and we’ll be pleased to add it to the list!

and, of course, Four Corners!

So, whether you’re a frequent visitor, or have never ventured there before, do take a look at our website, now, and let us know what you think!
