Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez

Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez sent greetings to the Jewish community in the Philadelphia region on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah, which begins Friday evening, Sept. 18.


Dear Friends,

Greetings my sisters and brothers of the Jewish faith tradition as you celebrate the solemn observance of Rosh Hashanah!

I join my voice with those of the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to wish all of you a fruitful year filled with good health and peace. May these high holy days be a time of blessing for each of you.

As Pope Francis once said, “In His eternal mercy, may He grant hope and serenity in our times and strengthen the cordial bonds of friendship between us.”

“Shanah Tovah,” a good year to all!

Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez
Archbishop of Philadelphia
