Williams' Statement Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

September 6th, 2021

Press Release

"Shana Tova U'Metukah, a happy and sweet new year, to all in the Jewish community who will begin celebrating Rosh Hashanah this evening.

"On Rosh Hashanah the sound of the shofar echoes, calling us to practice Teshuva, to reflect and renew. The past year has often been one of hardship and loss, but we now have an opportunity to recover, to protect ourselves and our communities, and to recognize the good we have seen in our neighbors while exemplifying it ourselves. We have the chance to advance on the path of self improvement, and be sealed in the Book of Life.

"Ah gut gebentsht yohr to everyone celebrating the arrival of 5782 - may it be a year of healing, of peace, and of joy for our families, friends, and communities."
