STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Rosh Hashanah

“The dawn of a new year is a moment for celebration and an opportunity for healing, renewal, and reflection. Rosh Hashanah is a sacred time for people of the Jewish faith — as we gather with family and friends to look forward to a hopeful new chapter in our lives, commit to turning away from the mistakes of yesterday, and think carefully about the role we must play in making tomorrow better for our children and grandchildren. My prayer is that we mark this holiday by filling our hearts, homes, and communities with love, and promising to always lift up those who need us the most. Happy New Year and Shanah Tovah.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
