The Leader of Canada’s NDP, Jagmeet Singh, issued the following statement on Rosh Hashanah:
“Today marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. On behalf of all New Democrats, I extend my best wishes to all Canadians gathering this week to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. This is a time to be with friends and family, reflect on the past year, revisit old challenges, build on past successes, and prepare for the upcoming year.
At the beginning of the Jewish New Year, let’s all take a moment to reflect on our past and future together, and honour the rich cultural traditions of Canada’s Jewish community and their vibrant contributions to Canadian society.
The NDP wishes all Jewish Canadian families a sweet new year, filled with good health, happiness, peace and prosperity.”
