Greetings from Gore, Lieberman

NASHVILLE — As Jews in America and around the world gather with family and friends to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Tipper and Hadassah join us in wishing you a happy and sweet New Year.

Rosh Hashanah is a time for rejoicing, but it is also a time for reflection. The past year, prosperity and plenty have touched so many families. But the immense promise of this time has not yet been fully realized. There are still families struggling to balance the needs of work and home, to care for their loved ones, and to create a better, safer life for their children.

The sound of the shofar should serve as a wake-up call. As our nation basks in the warm glow of our nation's long prosperity, we must ensure that every family can enjoy the sweetness of our success. As we usher in the new year, let us dedicate ourselves to creating an America where prosperity touches every family, in every community, and lifts up those who have not yet realized the potential of our nation. Let us pray for the cause of security and peace for Israel. And let us hope that we can come together as one America, and appreciate our common humanity.

Best wishes for a happy holiday and a wonderful new year. May you and your loved ones be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life. L'shanah tovah tikateyvu v'tehatemu!
