To recognize the holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant issued the following statement:
“This is a time for reflection on the past year. As we taste the sweetness of apples and honey tonight, we remember the year’s joys and sadnesses, and we thank God for our many blessings. Rosh Hashanah signals the beginning of the Holy Days for my family and for countless families across Florida, when we turn our attention inward and recommit to our core values — to be strong and peaceful, to be generous and charitable, to building a better world.
“From my family to yours, I wish you all the blessings of the new year. L’shana tova.”
