U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement today in observance of Rosh Hashanah:

“As the sun sets and Rosh Hashanah begins, so does our time of reflection and renewal. Tonight my family and I will join Jews from all over the world to celebrate the Jewish New Year and recommit ourselves to making the world we live in a sweeter one.

“Every year, the High Holy Days provide us with a precious opportunity to contemplate on the past year and consider ways to improve upon it for ourselves, our communities, and our nation. I look forward to using this special time to focus on how we can better use our voices to protect those who cannot speak for themselves, how we can safeguard the rights of those whose freedom is threatened, and how we can ensure our South Florida community is truly a haven for all who live here. From my family to yours, shana tova u’metuka – a happy, healthy, and sweet New Year.”
