To all Canadians observing Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, I extend my best wishes and sincere greetings.

The celebration of the Jewish New Year is a special time of the year – it signifies a fresh beginning while reflecting on the past, looking ahead and moving forward. It is important to use this time to revisit challenges and build on successes.

As Jewish Canadians celebrate the beginning of the New Year, it is an opportunity for Canadians of all faiths and cultures to reflect on the rich contribution of the Jewish community to our shared multicultural tradition.

L’shanah tovah.
