“I am delighted to pass on my best wishes to residents who will be observing the Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur across the borough.
“Yom Kippur is the Jewish day of communal and personal atonement for sins committed during the past year. Traditions during the celebration include fasting and prayer.
“Marking Yom Kippur and other major faith events together helps us to understand each other’s customs and traditions and develop a culture of mutual respect.”
Councillor Tony Newman, leader of the council
