Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Statement from NDP Leader Jack Layton on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah

To all Canadians observing Rosh Hashanah I extend my greetings and best wishes for the New Year.

The High Holidays are a time when Jewish Canadians reflect on the past while looking ahead and moving forward. It is important to use this time to revisit challenges and build on successes.

As you celebrate the beginning of the New Year, I hope all Canadians take the opportunity to honour the contribution of the Jewish community to our shared multicultural heritage.
