President Bush offered Rosh Hashanah greetings.
“The sound of the Shofar heralds the beginning of a new year and a time of remembrance and renewal for the Jewish people,” Bush said in a message Wednesday sent in the name of himself and his wife, Laura. “During these holy days, men and women are called to reflect on their faith and to honor the blessings of creation. The enduring traditions of Rosh Hashanah remind us of the deep values of faith and family that strengthen our Nation and help guide us each day. As Jewish people around the world come together to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, it is a chance to look to the new year with hope and faith.”
