Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on Saturday congratulated Jewish “brothers” in Georgia and “all over the world” on their New Year, Rosh Hashanah.
Garibashvili highlighted the “distinguished” history of the Georgian-Jewish “brotherhood” and noted that the “great love has been connecting the people for centuries”, the Government Administration said.
It is this love that caused the Jews to preserve their nationality in Georgia, which we, Georgians, are very proud of”, the PM emphasised.
“I want to share the great joy of your holiday and wish you peace, prosperity and success to you and your families”, the Head of the Government added.
Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration of the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, which translates to a day of shouting or blasting, and the holiday is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days that occurs in the late summer or early autumn of the Northern Hemisphere.
