October 03, 2016

Pope Francis has sent a message to the Jewish community of Rome on the occasion of the commemorations of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot.

“I am particularly glad to convey my warmest wishes to you and the Jewish community of Rome,” the Pope said in his message, which was dated September 28 and released October 1. “My sentiment extends also to Jewish communities throughout the world, in the hope that the upcoming festivities may be harbingers of abundant blessings to all.”

“May the Almighty grant peace and the tireless wish to promote it,” he added. “In His eternal mercy, may He grant hope and serenity in our times and strengthen the cordial bonds of friendship between us.”
