As Northeast Ohio marks the solemn observance of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the most Holy Days of the year for the Jewish community here and around the world, I join my heartfelt best wishes with those of the clergy, religious and faithful of the Diocese of Cleveland to wish our Jewish brothers and sisters a fruitful year filled with good health and great peace.
As Pope Francis said, “May the Almighty grant peace and the tireless wish to promote it. In His eternal mercy, may He grant hope and serenity in our times and strengthen the cordial bonds of friendship between us.”
Wishing our brothers and sisters in the Jewish community, “Shanah Tovah,” a good year to all!
