A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

Synagogue (1)

This is a close-up of the writing above the door of the synagogue on Niddrie Road in the south side of the city, not far from Queen’s Park. I did once see someone coming out and locking up so I know it is sometimes used, but apart from that one time I’ve only ever been past when it’s been locked up so I’ve never seen inside it. I’ll show you a view of the outside tomorrow.

    Very beautiful!!!! My Hebrew is so rusty, I can’t quite seem to make out all the writing!

    Sad that all places of worship have to have such security measures.
    At one point in my teens I had a plan to go to Glasgow Uni and study Hebrew and Czech. Youthful dreams!

    That’s an odd combination, Linda! At the college in Thurso, there have been Biblical Hebrew classes as well as Czech, but never at the same time.

    The beauty of Glasgow Uni, as Jackie will attest (and speaking as an Aberdeen graduate) is that you can study pretty much anything with anything in the Faculty of Arts. That’s also impressive for Thurso College.
