The Ecumenical/Multi-Faith Unit Group and the Bishop of New Westminster have coordinated a letter of greeting to local Jewish communities on Yom Kippur. This year Yom Kippur begins on the evening of October 4.

You can learn about this most important Jewish holiday here and why it is an important day in the faith tradition of our Jewish neighbours.

As followers of Christ we take seriously Jesus' call to walk in peace with one another. If you have a Jewish friend, neighbour, co-worker, family member, be sure to share with them this letter of greeting and the peace Christ has given you.
