TALLAHASSEE, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ -– “Yom Kippur is a day of reflection and an opportunity to meditate on the past year and seek forgiveness through prayer, repentance and charity. As people of the Jewish faith begin their observance of this sacred holiday, I hope all Floridians will take this time to make a similar recommitment of themselves to Florida’s communities.

“May this year be one of great possibilities and hope for Florida. While the sound of the shofar ends the most holy of days for the Jewish faith, I wish the very best to Jewish families and communities across Florida.”
