VICTORIA (September 29, 2018) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today for Rosh Hashanah:
“Tonight at sundown, Jewish families across our province will gather to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, marking the start of the Jewish New Year and the beginning of the High Holidays.
“The High Holidays are a time for reflection, repentance, and renewal to be spent with friends and loved ones. All over British Columbia the Jewish community will come together, in homes and synagogues, to take part in centuries-old traditions that have survived thanks to the strength and resilience of the Jewish people throughout the ages.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I want to extend our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Rosh Hashanah. May the year 5780 bring health and happiness to us all.
“Shanah Tovah Umetukah!”
