The holiday, this year held between 2-4 October, is also known as the Feast of Trumpets.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
“May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year” – this is a typical Jewish greeting on the first day of the month of Tishri. For one thousand years these words have also resonated in the land of Polin [the Hebrew word for Poland – ed.], the land inhabited jointly by both our nations. It is my pleasure to join in the wishes which you exchange on the occasion of the Jewish New Year. May it bring to the Jewish Community in Poland good, health, peace and prosperity.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me wish you with all my heart: “May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year”.
President of the Republic of Poland
