Prime Minister Boris Johnson has delivered a video message to Jewish people everywhere wishing them a “good and sweet new year”.

The Prime Minister said in a video message:

“Shana Tova to all our Jewish friends, relatives and neighbours around the world who are marking Rosh Hashanah this week, and I’m very sure it’s going to be a very happy new year, because, after 18 months in which we have seen Passover seders forced online, the high holy days disrupted and cancelled, bar and bat mitzvah parties cancelled. I’m delighted that here in the UK you’ll be able to welcome 5782 with all the celebration and ceremony, one would normally expect.

“But we do all have to be careful, so it’s very much ‘Shofar, sho good.’

“Synagogue doors are open. You can hear those blasts of the shofar in person rather than via some app, and you can finally get together with your nearest and dearest to reflect on the year just gone by and think about what kind of life you’re going to live in the 12 months to come.

“The past year has been difficult for us all, and everyone has certainly earned the right to celebrate the arrival of a new one.

“So on behalf of the whole country, let me wish the Jewish people everywhere a good and sweet new year.

“Shana Tova.”
