Saludos de Rosh Hashana del Presidente Rivlin

Dear friends of the World Jewish Congress:

It is a great pleasure to greet you on this occasion as we celebrate Rosh Hashanah and to take this opportunity to thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your extraordinary support for the democratic Jewish State of Israel and for all that you do to counter anti-Semitism and help Jewish communities around the world.

Dear friends, or as we say in Hebrew ajeinu kol beit Israel. Dear brothers and sisters around the world, this past year has been one of ups and downs. For most of the year, we have all been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. We have lost loved ones. Our schools, synagogues and community centers have been closed and we still face great uncertainty about the future. As the year ends and a new one begins, we all hope and pray that the new year brings us a cure for coronavirus and that once again we can meet in person and return to our normal lives.

Espero y creo que estos tiempos nos han recordado que kol Israel arevim ze la ze, que todo el pueblo judío es una familia, que debemos responsabilizarnos unos de otros y que lo que nos une es mucho más grande que lo que no puede dividir.

Queridos amigos, en las últimas semanas estamos asistiendo a un momento histórico para Israel y Medio Oriente con la firma de un acuerdo de paz entre Israel y los Emiratos. Espero que este nuevo espíritu de cooperación nos ayude a avanzar con nuestros vecinos palestinos y también con todos los países de Medio Oriente.

May the coming year be a year in which the ties between Israel and the diaspora, and between Jewish communities around the world, become increasingly stronger. From Jerusalem, I would like to wish you all shana tovah u'metukah. May all be blessed with happiness, joy and good health. I look forward to welcoming you next year in Jerusalem. God bless you. God bless you all and shana tovah u'metukah. "
