7.

ENSURE THAT ALL PUBLIC SERVICES ARE FULLY EQUIPPED TO PROVIDE APPROPRIATE SUPPORT FOR PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, INCLUDING THE PROVISION OF RELIGIOUSLY AND CULTURALLY SPECIFIC SERVICES, PROTECT SCHOOLS OF RELIGIOUS CHARACTER OR ETHOS, AND SUPPORT HERITAGE AND CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS.

 
 

For many Jewish patients, the availability of kosher meals in hospital and other health care settings is very important to recovery and well-being.

 

Access to a Jewish chaplain can also be extremely important, particularly for Jewish patients approaching the end of life.

 

NHS guidance on how to treat people with religious and cultural sensitivity after death, and the sensitivity of staff to these situations, is welcomed – but guidance and training, including regarding organ donation, must be refreshed regularly.

 

The community supports the continued public funding of denominational schools and is proud that Scotland’s only Jewish school, Calderwood Lodge Primary School, is a pioneering interfaith initiative that shares its site with the Roman Catholic St Clare’s Primary School.

 

The Scottish Jewish community is grateful for Scottish Government support for its culture and heritage including welfare organisations, an archives centre, synagogues, and a network of support for dispersed and isolated Jewish people.
