City of Aberdeen
The city of Aberdeen is the third largest in Scotland with a population of over 200,000. It is situated on the northeast coast between the mouths of the rivers Don and Dee. Although traditionally part of the county of Aberdeenshire, the City of Aberdeen has constituted a self-contained unitary authority since 1996. From 1975 to 1996, Aberdeen was a district of the now defunct Grampian Region.
Aberdeen Jewish Community
This small Jewish community dates back to at least 1893, when the synagogue was established. The community was never large and there are records of only one Jewish congregation ever existing in Aberdeen. The community's synagogue has the distinction of being the most northerly synagogue in the United Kingdom and the Jewish community itself is now the most northerly, following the Inveness community becoming defunct some decades ago.
