HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding the beginning of Yom Kippur.
“Yom Kippur is an important day of atonement and compassion in our Jewish communities,” Gleason said. “At sundown tonight, the Jewish communities of our Commonwealth will begin to fast in expression of their faith. Yom Kippur serves as an opportunity to reflect on our relationships with our family, friends and neighbors, and allow us a moment to reaffirm our commitment to serving the needs of others.
“On behalf of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania I would like to wish all of Pennsylvania’s Jewish communities a fulfilling time of reflection and prayer on this Yom Kippur.”
