“I want to wish a L’shana Tovah U’metukah–a good and sweet year– to all the Jewish residents of The Bronx and the entire city. It gives me great pleasure to offer you my warmest greetings and good wishes on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah.

“Rosh Hashanah is a time to share prayers and blessings with friends, family and loved ones. This new year offers us a chance to look forward with hope at the opportunities to work together for a better future, and to renew the bonds of solidarity and friendship in faith that bind our residents together,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
