ORBÁN MARKS JEWISH NEW YEAR

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has wished a “happy and sweet” new year to Hungary’s Jewish community, the PM’s press chief said. “Darkness is replaced by light, rain is followed by sunshine and sweet days will come after bitter ones,” Orbán said in his letter marking Rosh Hashanah. “We are saying good-bye to a year of many ominous clouds and bitterness, but I trust that the sound of the shofar will mark the beginning of times with more happiness.” The letter was sent to leaders of Hungary’s Jewish organisations.
