A  L’Shana Tova from Luke Foley, the opposition leader in the NSW parliament.

Rosh Hashanah – Jewish New Year Message – 5778

Luke Foley

As Leader of the Opposition and on behalf of the NSW Labor Party, I extend my warmest wishes for a happy, healthy and sweet new year ahead to all members of the NSW Jewish community: May the year ahead be filled with peace, happiness and good health.

Rosh Hashanah is celebrated in synagogues and homes across our wonderful State.

NSW Jewish families come together to recite the Kiddush, dip apples in honey, break the challah, enjoy a meal together with loved ones and wish each other Shana Tova.

As well as a celebration, Rosh Hashanah is a time for NSW’s 40,000 strong Jewish community to pray, reflect on the past year, look outwards and recommit to building a better future for our society.

It is also time to honour and retain the memory and lessons of the Shoah as each year, we see a dwindling number of Holocaust Survivors who bore witness.

We all pray for a lasting peace settlement in the Middle East.

As NSW Opposition leader, it is with great honour and pleasure that I say to you all: “L’Shana Tova u’Metukha”.

 

Luke Foley

NSW Opposition Leader
