The kosher butcher shop that supplied the Titanic will be preserved, thanks to millions of pounds of funding from late Jewish philanthropist Sir Isaac Wolfson, the Jewish Community online reported.

The green-tiled Galkoff's shop, an iconic building in Liverpool considered of national importance, provided kosher provisions for passengers on the notoriously famous ship that sank in 1912.

The building is categorized as a "grade-II" derelict building, and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine to build it into a new research wing of the medical school.

It is currently in discussions with English Heritage on how to best prefer Galkoff's and, as council Nick Small said, to "celebrate the Jewish cultural heritage of Liverpool."
