Van der Zyl vis­its Scot­land

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY JC REPORTER

BOARD OF Deputies pres­i­dent Marie van der Zyl has spent a week­end in Scot­land with Shab­bat in Ed­in­burgh fol­lowed by a trip to meet the con­gre­ga­tion in Aberdeen, the UK’s most northerly Jewish com­mu­nity.

Five MSPs at­tended the Fri­day night din­ner held in her hon­our in Ed­in­burgh and she at­tended Aberdeen’s an­nual meet­ing on Sun­day.

“Both Ed­in­burgh and Aberdeen gave me a fan­tas­tic wel­come,” she said. “It’s very im­por­tant that we sup­port com­mu­ni­ties in all parts of the coun­try.

“Aberdeen is a very warm and in­clu­sive com­mu­nity which is proud to sup­port Is­rael. How­ever, they need help to repair their beau­ti­ful old syn­a­gogue and to keep their com­mu­nity go­ing.”
