As a proud American and as a proud Jew, I believe that both heritages bring with them responsibilities and sacred hopes. And both are rooted in those words from our Torah that are inscribed on the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia:
“Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitant there of.”
So may this continue to be a land of opportunity and freedom, and may our message of hope, human dignity and basic human rights for all be proclaimed to people everywhere.
