Happy New Year!


JfJfP’s hopes and wishes for the new year
JfJfP wishes all our signatories and supporters a Happy New Year and hopes it will bring recognition of a Palestinian state; an end to the occupation; and peace, justice and equality for all in the region.

The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, is on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th September this year, beginning at sunset on the 28th. Rosh Hashana is followed ten days later by the fast of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Together these are considered the Jewish High Holy days. Five days after Yom Kippur, Jews celebrate Succoth, the harvest festival where Jews remember that the children of Israel lacked shelter while they wandered in the desert.

Message from Union Juive Francaise pour la Paix to JfJfP
(Jewish French Union for Peace.  Translation of message Luke Hodgkin)
Dear UJFP sympathizers
The UJFP wishes all its members and sympathizers a happy new year full of peace, prosperity, justice and love. This feast, which begins this evening, the 28th September, marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. We think particularly this year of the Arab world, bearing in mind the revolutions which have overthrown oppressive regimes in Tunisia, in Egypt, and (more controversially) in Libya; a process which is continuing in other countries in the region.

In Jewish tradition, Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of the month of Tishri, opens a period of introspection, of examining one’s conscience, which leads up to Yom Kippur (the Day of Pardon) which this year falls on the 8th of October. We aim for spiritual purification and renewal, so that each can be entered for one more year in the Book of Life – and for many more years if possible.
Whether or not you are a believer, this period of introspection can mark a moment in which to pause before beginning a new year which, we hope, will be built on a good foundation. If Jews in Israel and worldwide examine their consciences with sincerity, we may hope that they will take the necessary steps to assure a year of peace and fraternity in the Middle East and elsewhere. We hope that UJFP will not hold back in the struggle for justice. So, happy new year to all.

Happy New Year from EAPPI
Dear Friends,

EAPPI would like to wish all our Jewish friends a very happy New Year.
Chag sameach ve shana Tova!
