Canberra Sends Rosh Hashanah Greetings

September 12, 2010

Inset: The ‘shofar’ horn that rings in the Jewish New Year

Now that the general election is behind us, hopefully Canberra can get back to ‘normal’. An early sign of ‘getting back into the groove’ was the newly elected PM’s Rosh Hashanah interview with the AJN.

All over the world, leaders (and opposition leaders) have been sending out their Rosh Hashanah New Year greetings, from Julia Gillard to Tony Abbott – even Barack Obama.

Says Julia ” “I offer my warmest, best wishes to the Australian Jewish community as you gather in prayer and celebration for the festival of Rosh Hashanah. This ancient and solemn event is a precious opportunity to reflect on the past and prepare for the year ahead – a year of hoped-for sweetness and success. I hope that all Australians who treasure their Jewish heritage will be strengthened in their sense of identity through the observance of Rosh Hashanah.”

Tony Abbott also got in on the New Year festivities, saying ““It gives me great pleasure to send New Year greetings to the many readers of The Australian Jewish News. New Year, in any religion, provides a chance to come together as a community and reflect on the time that has passed while looking forward with confidence to the future.”

A shana tova to all our local Jewish community in Elsternwick, Caulfield and surrounds – we wish you a sweet new year. Enjoy this time with your families!
