Consultation: Being Jewish in Scotland
27 June 2010

Representatives from a wide range of communal organisations attended a meeting that followed SCoJeC’s AGM to find out about proposals we have been developing in discussion with the Community Safety Unit of the Scottish Government, to explore “the experience of the Jewish community in Scotland in relation to their safety with a focus on positive work done by individuals and groups to improve safety overall.”  

According to the Community Safety Trust, the number of antisemitic incidents reported in 2009 rose significantly from 2008, and although the quantity of reported incidents is not large, the Scottish Government and police consider that even one incident is one too many, and therefore wish to address the concerns of anyone who feels isolated and vulnerable.

The project, which is intended to be as inclusive as possible, involving Jewish people living throughout Scotland, will not, however, simply provide a forum to discuss antisemitism, but aims, amongst other things, to learn more about the way in which Jewish people view their relationship with Scotland, and how they feel they are percieved by the wider community.

If you would like to contribute to the research by sharing your experiences, please contact SCoJeC at or by telephone 0141 638 6411.
