Navon’s New Year’s Message

President Yitzhak Navon issued today the following Rosh Hashanah message to the Jewish people around the world:

“In this New Year 5739 let us turn our thoughts and deeds toward the attainment of the two supreme objectives of the Jewish people in our time: strengthening Jewishness everywhere, above all through education; strengthening Israel, above all through aliya. It is our central task to advance in determination and dedication on these roads of life. May this be a year of peace for Israel and for all the world, a year of creativity and deep gratification for all of us.”
