US President Joe Biden congratulated Jewish communities in the USA, Israel and throughout the world on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year
According to the president, this holiday is a time to reflect on the past year and to ask questions that go beyond personal faith: “Who do I want to be? What kind of nation do we want to create? What kind of world do we want to build?”
“Rosh Hashanah is an affirmation that each of us is empowered by the will of our Creator and by our common humanity to bridge the gap between the world we see and the world we aspire to,” Biden said.
“We have made significant progress in this effort, but there is still much work ahead. Protect ourselves and each other from a virus of exceptionally rare danger. Restore an economy that empowers all Americans. To give no refuge to hatred and to speak out openly and with conviction against anti-Semitism, wherever and however it manifests itself. Reaffirm our strongest bond with the state of Israel,” the president stressed, wishing all those celebrating a happy 5782.
