Congressman Al Green Commemorates Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year
“People of the Jewish faith across our nation and worldwide are celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashanah is an occasion for celebration and prayer for the progress achieved, as well as the work ahead. As a country that celebrates diversity, we should express our gratitude for the multitude of positive contributions the Jewish community has made in our lives. We should also take this time to renew our friendship with and affection for the State of Israel, as well as our unwavering support for peace in the Middle East.
“To all of my Jewish friends: I wish you l’shana tova umetukah – a good and sweet year.”
