Rosh Hashanah message from the Leader of the Australian Greens

On behalf of the Australian Greens, I extend best wishes to Australia’s Jewish community for a prosperous, healthy and safe new year.

The Australian Jewish community has always been an integral part of the fabric of Australia, helping to build a vibrant, tolerant and multicultural society.  I stand with you in working towards a world free of anti-Semitism so that we all can live in peace and harmony.

Rosh Hashanah is one of the holiest days of the year.  It is not only a celebration of the New Year, but a time for reflection and to look back at the year past and to think about how to make the next year a better one.  It is a time to look ahead with hope.

The tradition of reflection and celebration is one all people can learn from.

As members of the Jewish community gathering in synagogues and homes, I wish everyone in the Australian Jewish community shanah tovah and a safe, peaceful, and successful new year.

Richard Di Natale
Leader of the Australian Greens
