Orbán: Tradition brings peace, joy, harmony to people’s lives

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has greeted Hungary's Jewish community in a letter on the occasion of the approaching Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, his press chief said on Saturday.

“It is an experience shared by all of us that traditions passed on from our ancestors bring peace, joy and harmony to people’s lives, and can provide strength for everyday life as well as make the holidays brighter,” Orban said in the letter delivered to head of the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (MAZSIHISZ) Andras Heisler, chief rabbi of the EMIH Jewish Community Shlomo Koves, head of the Hungarian Autonomous Orthodox Congregation (MAOIH) Robert Deutsch, leader of the Hungarian Jewish Heritage Foundation Gyorgy Szabo and Hungarian Jewish Prayer Association (ZSIMA) leader Tamas Rona, Bertalan Havasi said.

“Allow me to respectfully greet you and the Hungarian Jewish community on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah,” Orban said. “I wish this new year to be as sweet and round for you as the honey and the apple placed on the table for the holiday,” he added.
