Celtic fans anger at STUC Palestinian campaign

By Jessica Elgot, December 2, 2009

Celtic fans have reacted with outrage at the Scottish Trade Union Congress’ attempts to use the Hapoel Tel Aviv Europa League match as a political rally against Israel.

The STUC, backed by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, plans to hand out 10,000 Palestinian flags to fans entering the Celtic Park stadium as an “act of solidarity”, almost one year after Operation Cast Lead.

Writing on blogs, comments and message boards, Celtic fans have railed against the mixing of football and Middle East politics.

Mitzvah Day: Scottish communities clear up

By Stephanie Brickman, November 19, 2009

In a collaboration between Glasgow UJIA, Maccabi and Giffnock and Newlands Hebrew Congregation, 50 Scottish youngsters tidied up the Jewish cemeteries at Sandymount, Glenduffhill and Cardonald and volunteered at care homes.

Giffnock and Newlands minister Rabbi Moshe Rubin took youngsters to the new branch of Mark’s Deli, where they asked shoppers to donate an item of food.

A similar initiative took place at the Hello Deli, with all donated goods distributed to the homeless.

Glasgow Jewish cemetery is restored

By Stephanie Brickman, November 12, 2009

Glasgow City Council has contributed £20,000 towards the restoration of the Jewish section of Sandymount cemetery, which is entering its next phase.

The project, costing a total £210,000, began in 2004 in the wake of considerable damage through repeated vandalism. Since then, 20 out of 35 rows of headstones have been restored and laid flat to make upkeep easier.

Donations have been received from all over the world, a number prompted by JC coverage of the project, which is led by London-based Glaswegian Stanley Coorsh, who has many family members buried at Sandymount.
