Last week, President Trump released a powerful statement in support of Jewish people all over the world as we enter into the Fall Holy Day seasons explained in Leviticus 23. Here is a quote:
As Jewish families across America and the world come together to mark the beginning of the year 5778 in the Jewish calendar, we join them in this time of reflection on the past year and hope for the year to come.
The High Holy Days are also an opportunity for us all to remember the extraordinary perseverance of the Jewish people throughout the centuries. They have endured unthinkable persecution, and yet, through it all, they have filled civilization with hope, love, and freedom.
Today we thank God for the ancient faith of the Jewish people and the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel while wishing a blessed New Year to those preparing to commemorate the upcoming High Holy Days.
This statement was published on the White House website. While God's people prepare to celebrate His holy days, Trump's statement assures them that they have a strong ally. It sends a clear message to the enemies of Israel that they will also have to contend with the United States.
