Rosh HaShanah Message

from the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP

19 September 2019

First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, with SCoJeC Chair Micheline Brannan and Director Ephraim Borowski

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 special time of contemplation, I send my best wishes for the year ahead.  

We deeply value the contribution made by Scotland's Jewish communities as we continue to work together to build a safer, stronger and fairer Scotland. Celebrating the cultural and religious identity of our faith communities is more important now than ever as we work to tackle the hatred and prejudice that unfortunately still exists within society.

As this year coincides with SCoJeC’s 20th anniversary we also celebrate the contributions they have made, and continue to make, to represent, connect, and support our Jewish communities in Scotland.

I am grateful for the work you do and look forward to another successful 20 years. 

Wishing you good health, happiness, peace, and prosperity today and all through the year. 

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