The Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (SCoJeC) is the democratic organisation that represents the organised Jewish community in Scotland.

SCoJeC was established in 1999 in response to Devolution with the principal aim of providing the Jewish Community of Scotland with a single democratically accountable voice in dealings with the Scottish Parliament and Government, other communities, and other statutory and official bodies. This remains a core element of our work and SCoJeC is now widely recognised in the Jewish and wider Scottish communities as the representative umbrella body of all the Jewish communities in Scotland. Our remit includes a strong commitment to fostering integration and promoting dialogue and understanding between the Jewish community and other communities in Scotland, and we work in partnership with other organisations and communities to promote equality, good relations, and mutual understanding. SCoJeC also provides a support network for the smaller communities and individuals and families who live outwith any Jewish community, and assists organisations within the Scottish Jewish community to comply with various regulatory requirements.

Amongst others, our activites include:

Representing the Jewish community in Scotland to government and other official bodies;

Promoting good interfaith and inter-community relations and equality;

Providing regulatory and support services to all of Scotland’s Jewish communities;

Providing support for the wider Jewish Community of Scotland and for communal organisations;

Organising social events, particularly for Jewish people living in areas of Scotland with no formal Jewish Community;

Bringing Scottish issues to the attention of relevant UK Jewish organisations;

Providing speakers and educational materials about Judaism to teachers and schools;

Responding to miscellaneous enquiries about the Community from individuals, public bodies, and visitors;
