Rosh HaShanah Message

from the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP

First Minister with Rabbi Rubin at Garnethill Synagogue

The first Minister is shown a Torah scroll by Rabbi Rubin in Garnethill synagogue

"I send my warmest greetings to everyone in Scotland's Jewish communities marking the high holy days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and wish everyone joy and happiness for the forthcoming year.

The positive contribution made by Scotland's Jewish communities to our society is deeply valued, and we appreciate all that they have to offer.

Scotland is at its strongest when we are a nation that celebrates diversity. I want to make sure that all Jewish people in Scotland feel they can celebrate their identity and I know we still have work to do to achieve this.

We will continue to stand together against all forms of hate crime and prejudice and redouble our efforts to build a country where we live in strong, resilient and supportive communities and where everyone can live freely and in peace."
