September 18, 2018 (Edmonton) – On behalf of the Alberta Party Caucus, MLA Karen McPherson is wishing Alberta’s Jewish Community a Gemar Chatimah Tovah.
“During the high holiday of Yom Kippur, the Jewish community gathers for temple services while fasting in order to bring about true repentance with the goal of each individual changing their actions for the better heading into the New Year of 5779.”
“Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement, is a time of reflection for the community, and for gathering together all over the world to observe the holiday. The hope is that today people will be inscribed according to the sages, in the Book of Life.”
“So on behalf of the Alberta Party Caucus, I hope that each person who is fasting during this time has an easy fast, and I wish every member of the Jewish community, a Shanah Tovah”.
