President Sends Rosh Hashanah Greetings

Yesterday, President Obama videotaped holiday greetings (full text) to those celebrating the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. The New Year holiday, beginning the ten day period culminating in Yom Kippur, commences tonight.  In addition to greetings for "a sweet year full of health, happiness, and peace," the President used his statement as an occasion to reaffirm U.S. commitment to the state of Israel.
