Papal greetings to Rome's rabbi for Rosh Hashanah

September 29, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI has sent his greetings to Rome’s Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni, as the Jewish world celebrates the feasts of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot.

The Pope’s message included the wish that “these important feasts may be an occasion for many blessings from on high, and a source of infinite grace.” He said: “May God in His goodness protect the Jewish community and allow us to deepen our friendship, both here in Rome and all over the world.”
