Rosh Hashanah
By Marco Rubio

As Jewish people around the world begin celebrating Rosh Hashanah tonight at sundown, I join them in welcoming this New Year and offer them my warmest wishes for a sweet and peaceful new year ahead.

There has been a growing anti-Semitism around the world, in the Middle East, across Europe, and even in the United States, sometimes masked as being “anti-Israel.” For many Jews around the world, simply living a peaceful life and enjoying the freedom to worship, work or sit in a café without harassment often seems like a distant possibility. However, every New Year is a chance for new beginnings and renewed hope, and my prayer is that all the Jewish people will be written and sealed in the Book of Life.

As our Jewish friends and neighbors celebrate this High Holiday, it’s a good opportunity for all of us in the United States to reflect on the Judeo-Christian values on which our nation was founded, as well as the unbreakable bond we share with the Jewish state of Israel.
 
In this time of prayer and reflection, my family and I wish all members of the Jewish community a happy, healthy, and sweet new year. May this celebration bring with it good health, happiness, lasting peace, and prosperity.

Shanah Tovah U’metukah.
