Rosh HaShana Greetings 5771/2010

Dear Friends

Gina and I would like to wish our special community everything of the best at this time of Rosh HaShana.

As is traditional at this time of judgment, we would like to ask forgiveness for any wrong that we have done and hope, with Hashem’s help, to continue to serve our community with loyalty and dedication.

Allow me to conclude with the words of one of our prayers: “May our Father in heaven, who blessed our forefathers Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’akov, bless this entire holy community, and all those involved faithfully in the needs of the community. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, remove from us every affliction, heal our bodies forgive our sins and send blessing and success to all our work. May He guard our tongues from evil, and our lips from slander. May the King of the universe come to our assistance at all times.”

May we be inscribed and sealed for a good and a sweet year.

Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein
