VANCOUVER (September 18, 2018) – Leader of the Official Opposition, Andrew Wilkinson, released the following statement today for Yom Kippur:
“Tonight at sundown, Jewish families across our province will gather to observe Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism.
“Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is a time for reflection and repentance accompanied by a day-long fast that concludes the High Holidays.
“Across British Columbia, in homes and synagogues, the Jewish Community will take part in centuries-old traditions and look forward to all that the coming months in the Jewish calendar will bring.
“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 Hatima Tova!”
