DNC Statement on Jewish High Holy Days
DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“As Jewish communities in America, Israel, and around the world prepare to observe the High Holy Days, the Democratic Party wishes them a sweet and happy new year.
“From the beginning of Rosh Hashanah to the final sealing on Yom Kippur, the Days of Awe are a time for reflection, repentance, and renewal. Over the past year, we’ve seen how fear and hatred can divide our country. But while each new year brings new challenges, the DNC will always be a steadfast partner to Jewish communities as we combat anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, and as we continue the work of tikkun olam. We look forward to strengthening the historic bond between Jewish Americans and the Democratic Party and working together to put the values we share into action. Shana Tova.”
