Archbishop Charles Chaput wrote the following letter to Rabbi Elisa Goldberg of the Board of Rabbis of Greater Philadelphia on the occasion of the coming High Holy Days for the Jewish community:
Dear Rabbi Goldberg:
In union with the Catholic clergy and people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, I want to express my prayerful best wishes as the Jewish community observes the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
These holy days are meant to be times for reflection about some truly fundamental matters. Discovering what is authentically the divine plan for us in our troubled times and seeking heavenly guidance to accomplish that plan are noble deeds. The more that each of us is attuned to the will of the Heavenly Father, the more we will achieve peace of soul and become faithful instruments in bringing harmony to our world.
May the observance of these sacred days be for you a source of renewed strength and inspiration.
Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.
Archbishop of Philadelphia
