President Trump released a statement Monday wishing Jewish families around the world "many blessings" ahead of the Jewish new year.
"The High Holy Days are a time of both reflection on the past year and hope for renewal in the year to come," the statement said. "Jewish communities across the country, and around the world, enter into a time of prayer, repentance, and rededication to the sacred values and traditions that guide the incredible character, and spirit, of the Jewish people."
The statement also reiterated the Trump administration's support for Israel.
"We reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel, and we ask God to deliver justice, dignity, and peace on Earth," the statement said. "Melania and I wish everyone a sweet, healthy, and peaceful year, which we hope will bring many blessings to all."
Last month, several American rabbinical groups announced they would not hold their traditional call with the U.S. president to mark the High Holy Days due to Trump's response to the events in Charlottesville, Va., which included white nationalists and neo-Nazis marching and chanting "Jews will not replace us."
"We have concluded that President Trump's statements during and after the tragic events in Charlottesville are so lacking in moral leadership and empathy for the victims of racial and religious hatred that we cannot organize such a call this year," the joint statement said.
Rosh Hashana, which marks the start of the Jewish new year, begins Wednesday.
