“This evening at sundown, members of the Jewish community across New York City will begin to observe Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of Atonement and one of the holiest days of the year. Families will come together to repent, reflect, and commit to approaching the year ahead with renewed hope, purpose, and resolve. I hope all Jewish New Yorkers have an easy and meaningful fast. May we all be sealed in the book of life. G’mar Chatima Tova.”
