Shuls to vote on historic merger

Two simultaneous special meetings will decide future of south side community

SUNDAY will mark the beginning of one of the most momentous periods in the history of Glasgow's Jewish community.

Attending will be the members of the two remaining Orthodox synagogues in the south side of the city, Giffnock and Newton Mearns.

The meetings are the first step in the process which will determine if those two synagogues will continue to maintain their individual identity or if they will merge to become a single unit.
