This week our Jewish friends in Israel and around the world are celebrating the joyous beginning of Rosh Hashanah, the New Year according to the ancient Hebrew calendar.

To all of the Jewish families gathered with friends and loved ones, we wish a year filled with every blessing of peace, joy, and safety. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob continue to fill your homes with laughter and shield you from every enemy.

Amidst ongoing terrorism from Gaza and rising tensions along Israel’s northern borders, this is our prayer for every person in Israel this Rosh Hashanah:

“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.””

Numbers 6:24-26

And to all the members of Christians United for Israel, I pray God will bless each one of you with abundant joy, prosperity, health, and divine favour in the coming year as you continue to show your love and friendship to His beloved nation, Israel.

To you and to all our Jewish friends, we wish you Shana Tova! (Happy New Year!)
