Statement from Andrea Horwath on Yom Kippur

On behalf of all New Democrats, I would like to extend our wishes for an easy, meaningful fast to all Ontarians observing Yom Kippur.

The Day of Atonement – the holiest day in the Jewish calendar – is a time for humility, self-reflection, and a chance to reflect on past challenges. In this self-examination, we find new hope, as we work to improve ourselves, our communities, and the world.

By embracing our shared humanity and commitment to helping one another, we can build a brighter future for all Ontarians.

Ontario’s Jewish community has made countless, significant contributions to this province throughout its history, and New Democrats look forward to continuing to work together, towards a more fair, inclusive Ontario free of anti-Semitism and hate.

G’mar hatimah tovah.
