City of Dundee

The city of Dundee is the fourth largest in Scotland with a population of over 150,000. It is situated on the north bank of the Firth of Tay on Scotland's east coast.  Although traditionally within the county of Angus (which was also known as Forfarshire), the City of Dundee has constituted a self-contained unitary authority since 1996. From 1975 to 1996, Dundee was a district (and the administrative centre) of the now defunct Tayside Region. 

Dundee Jewish Community

Dundee had had a Jewish Community since, at least, the latter part of the nineteenth century, with a single Jewish congregation.
