VICTORIA (October 8, 2019) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today for Yom Kippur:
“As the sun sets this evening, Jewish families across our province will gather to observe Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism, and the last of ten days of penitence that began on Rosh Hashanah.
“Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is a time for introspection, fasting, and repentance. Tomorrow, the Jewish community will mark the end of this solemn period and break the fast together.
“On behalf of the entire BC Liberal Caucus, I want to recognize all those observing Yom Kippur and wish them an easy fast.
“G’mar Hatimah Tovah!”
