‘This year, the Hebrew New Year and the Hijra (Muslim) New Year coincide exactly on exactly the same date. This is an opportunity to wish us all a good year…’

I’m translating this NEW YEAR message by עומדים ביחד نقف معًا [“We Stand Together”] because it feels good to know this, I am glad to see this, & even if I’m in another country, I extend my wishes with theirs, although my hopes go further, for  equality and partnership for Jews and Arabs in all of Palestine.

This year, the Hebrew New Year and the Hijra (Muslim) New Year coincide exactly on exactly the same date. This is an opportunity to wish us all a good year, a year of peace, a year of equality and partnership for Jews and Arabs in Israel, a year in which we’ll build a just society in this country, where people can live in dignity, earn a living in dignity, grow old in dignity.
