“Tonight, families across New York City will begin to observe Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of Atonement, and one of the holiest days of the year. Members of the Jewish community will gather to reflect on the past year, how they lived their values, served their families and communities, and are committed to future change in the coming year. I wish to extend an easy and meaningful fast for all those who are observing. May we all be sealed in the book of life. G’mar Chatima Tova.”
