Sends well wishes to the Utah Jewish Community Celebrating the Beginning of Yamim Nora’im
SALT LAKE CITY September 20, 2017 – The Office of the Utah Attorney General wishes all our friends celebrating Rosh Hashanah a safe, happy, and healthy new year. Attorney General Sean Reyes released the following message:
“Having grown up in a community with many friends of the Jewish faith, I have always enjoyed the spirit of renewal embodied by Rosh Hashanah. Shanah tovah u’metukah!
“May we all reflect on our experiences and imperfections in the effort to become more honorable human beings and more invested in our communities.”
Rosh Hashanah celebrates the Jewish New Year and is the beginning of Yamim Nora’im, Days of Awe. It is a time of personal reflection and self-examination of the soul, looking back at past experiences with renewed energy to make positive changes for the coming year.
