Velazquez on Yom Kippur
Washington, DC – Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement in honor of Yom Kippur:
“Today, Jewish families across the world are observing Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. On this day, we look back to the past year, and all it has brought. This is not an easy task, especially in light of the difficulties we have faced as a nation. Still, we look back not to mourn or lament, but to learn and overcome, and to celebrate our unwavering dedication to one another. To my Jewish friends and neighbors, I hope that all who are in observance have an easy fast. As we all join together in reflection, I wish you peace and good blessings for the coming year.
“Gmar Chatima Tova!”
