St Andrews JSoc is enjoying one of its most successful years thanks to a significant membership boost.
Last year the society signed up around 200 new members, meaning more events, backed by more people, are now able to take place.
At the end of October, JSoc arranged a successful Shabbaton with the help of members from nearby Dundee Hebrew Congregation. After a Shabbat morning service they held a discussion on the week's parsha and a bagel lunch.
Bill and Emily Shackman, from the Dundee community, have agreed to return to lead a number of services for students throughout the year.
