NYC Public Advocate’s Statement On The Celebration Of Rosh Hashanah

September 15th, 2023

Press Release

"Ah gut gebentsht yohr to all in the Jewish community across our city – wishing a happy, sweet new year to everyone beginning to celebrate Rosh Hashanah this evening.

The sound of the shofar resonates through Rosh Hashanah, calling us to reflect and practice Teshuva as we prepare to move forward into the coming year. With that reflection comes gratitude for the year that has been – for the totality of time we've had, for the good and the bad moments, for the wisdom we have gained to move forward.

A new year is another chance for self-improvement and renewal, as we hope to be sealed in the Book of Life for a ketivah tovah. May the coming year 5784 be one of strength and solidarity, love and light for our families and communities. Shanah Tovah U’Metukah!
