September 2023 — Cairo … A MESSAGE OF PEACE TO JEWS FOR ROSH HASHANA
Assalamo Alsikum and Shalom to all neighbors and friends in Israel, throughout the Middle East and all round the world.
From the heart of Egypt, where I presently live, I extend best most sincere wishes, warmest wishes to all the Jewish people as you celebrate Rosh Hashanah and the festival of Yom Kippur.
As a Muslim and author and writer I say we are all guided by the same eternal light that shines within us all.
In the land where cultures have entwined for centuries. Where the Nile is a witness to history’s embrace.
In this season of love, peace, harmony, reflection, renewal and repentance filed with joy, health and blessings.
During Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur we seek forgiveness from our Creator. On Yom Kippur which this year falls on 15th September, we spend the day fasting and in deep prayer.
In a world beset by conflict, war and hatred we pray for peace, understanding, love and harmony.
I extend greetings and warmest wishes to all,
