Velázquez on Rosh Hashanah
Washington, DC - Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement in honor of Rosh Hashanah:
“I would like to wish all of our Jewish neighbors in New York’s seventh district a healthy and happy Rosh Hashanah. As we welcome in the New Year and the prospect of a fresh start, we also reflect on the difficult times of this past year. All of us endured challenges throughout the past year. Yet, no matter how big or small each of our struggles were, we found a way to persevere. During this time we are also reminded of the invaluable contributions that our Jewish neighbors have made to our City, and our nation.
“As families across New York City and the world come together to celebrate, may we all show comfort, kindness and warmth to one another in the spirit of this holiday. Shana Tova and Happy Rosh Hashanah!”
