Rosh Hashanah

Sep 4, 2013 | Blog

This evening we join our Jewish friends in America and around the world as they mark Rosh Hashanah, a celebration of the Jewish New Year. For millions across the globe, this sacred holiday is a chance to observe old traditions and usher in new beginnings for the year ahead.

Let us also take this opportunity to reflect upon our friendship with Israel, and to pray that safety and peace be felt there during this holy time. Especially in light of the tumultuous circumstances gripping the region, the people of Israel must be given the space and the freedom to observe Rosh Hashanah in peace.

In this time of celebration, prayer, and reflection for the Jewish people, we ask that God’s blessings be felt on all who observe this holiday. May the New Year bring them peace and happiness.

L’shanah tovah u’metukah.
