Rosh HaShanah Message

from the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP

5 September 2018

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP with SCoJeC Chair Micheline Brannan, and Glasgow Rep Council Co-President Evy Yedd

The First Minister with SCoJeC Chair Micheline Brannan, and Glasgow Jewish Rep Council Co-President Evy Yedd

I send my warmest greetings to everyone in Scotland's Jewish communities as they begin to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and mark the holy day of Yom Kippur. At this time of reflection, I hope the forthcoming year will bring joy and happiness to all.

The Scottish Government appreciates and values our relationships with our Jewish communities, and I want to thank you all for the significant and important contributions you all make to Scottish society. I have enjoyed meeting with a number of Jewish organisations, including SCoJeC, this past year and I very much look forward to continued positive engagement in the year ahead.

It is essential that everyone feels connected, has a sense of belonging and feels valued in Scotland and I am proud of the way in which we continue to work together to tackle prejudice and build a more inclusive, safer Scotland.

On behalf of the Scottish Government and the people of Scotland, I wish you Shanah Tovah!
