The American Human Rights Council (AHRC) extends its best wishes for all who celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, from sundown on Sept. 13 to the evening of Sept. 15. In the Jewish oral tradition, Rosh Hashanah marks the completion of the creation of the world. Rosh Hashanah is a major holiday in the Jewish calendar, a holiday that emphasizes the special relationship between God and humanity. Rosh Hashanah is usually commemorated by dinner with family, reflection, prayer and service at a synagogue.
The American Human Rights Council executive board, board of directors, advisory board, friends and supporters extend their best wishes to the Jewish community on this special occasion hoping for lasting peace for all.
“We send our best greetings to our Jewish brothers and sisters in humanity. We hope that this Jewish New Year brings peace and justice for all,” stated Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director.
