As families around the world experience unspeakable misery, it’s more important than ever to help heal the planet. Antisemitism still plagues Jewish communities, and economic and racial inequities corrode America’s character. Let’s resolve this Rosh Hashanah to end hate, promote fairness, and build a future for America’s children.
“Shana tova u’metukah from Congress!”
