On behalf of the Australian Labor Party, I wish the Australian Jewish community a Shana Tova U’Metukah – a sweet and happy new year. As I said this time last year, it is a wish that is even more powerfully heartfelt during this time of pandemic; I have every hope that is a sentence I never have to repeat again.

Anthony Albanese

However, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in, Rosh Hashanah and the High Holy Days resolutely remain what they have always been: a time for family and community. Even as physical distance comes between you and your loved ones, nothing will ever stretch your emotional bonds.

With the quiet of lockdown having fallen across many parts of the country, the sound of the Shofar is even more welcome as it announces a new year and a fresh start for our Jewish community and across the world. It is also a time of reflection and repentance, and a renewal of our dedication to making Australia better for all Australians.

I am deeply grateful to the Australian Jewish community for your long and remarkable history of contribution. Quite simply, this country is unimaginable without you. Just as you have helped make Australia the nation it is today, you will help shape Australia as we emerge from this crisis.

May this new year of 5782 bring you and your family naches and simchas, and may the Shofar be granted extra decibels as it ushers in what we all hope will be a year of joy and success, recovery and renewal.

Anthony Albanese, Leader of the Opposition
