WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day released the following statement celebrating Rosh Hashanah:

“As Jewish families in America and across the world come together to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, I wish them the happiest of New Years,” said Chairman Reince Priebus. “A celebration that spans six millennia, the holiday’s traditions have deep roots and great significance. The beginning of the Days of Awe reminds us of the central role that faith and family have played in forging our strong nation. During this time of remembrance and renewal, let us recommit ourselves to God and to a more hopeful future.”

“At sundown today, our Jewish friends and family mark the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, and I share their hopes for the year ahead,” said Co-Chairman Day. “As greetings of ‘L'shana tova’ are shared, we all pray ‘for a good and sweet year’—one of peace and prosperity.”
