Dominic-Raab-2Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab today sent his Rosh Hashanah message to Jewish communities in the UK and around the world, in a statement.

The Foreign Secretary said: “Rosh Hashanah is a special time to reflect. This year many will reflect on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen Belsen. My father grew up knowing that the loved ones he left behind when he fled Czechoslovakia were systematically slaughtered for one simple reason. They were Jews”.

He added that the Government stands shoulder to shoulder with the Jewish community: “I would like to reassure the Jewish community in the UK and worldwide: the UK is committed to your safety and wellbeing, and stands alongside you in the fight against racism and intolerance”.

Mr Raab said: “I thank the community for their invaluable contribution to the UK and to our heritage, and wish you all a happy and peaceful new year. Shana Tova and Chatima Tova!”
