Statement from Premier Doug Ford
Today, Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario, issued the following statement on Yom Kippur:
"Today at sundown begins Yom Kippur, or The Day of Atonement; the holiest day of the year in the Jewish calendar.
It is also a time of rest, reflection and renewal during which the Jewish community fast, pray, attend synagogue and refrain from work.
As the Jewish community reflects on the past year, I want to wish everyone an easy and meaningful fast. May you be sealed in the Book of Life.
G'mar Chatima Tovah."
