Statement by Gov. Perry in Recognition of Rosh Hashanah
Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement in recognition of Rosh Hashanah:
“Each year, the High Holidays represent a time of solemn reflection and remembrance of the past, tempered with hope for better days ahead.
“The past year has certainly been a challenging time for the people of Israel, finding themselves beset with threats from all sides. Through it all Israel has handled the conflicts with justice, fairness, and a stoic determination to do what’s right for her people. This Rosh Hashanah in particular, it is vital that Texas and the United States reiterate our firm and unwavering support for a strong and secure Israel by continuing to stand with our greatest ally and most cherished friend in the Middle East.
“To all in Texas and around the world observing Rosh Hashanah, I wish much happiness and prosperity in the coming year. L’Shanah Tovah.”
