Biden uses Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah to tout ‘encouraging progress’ his admin has delivered

President Biden used Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year festival, to call attention to “progress” his administration has delivered over the past year.

Acknowledging the Jewish holiday as an important time of “reflection, repentance, and renewal,” the White House released a statement detailing gains the American people have enjoyed.

“With the piercing sound of the shofar and the sweetness of apples dipped in honey, the Jewish New Year ushers in a sacred time of reflection, repentance, and renewal. A time to pause and look inward. During these Days of Awe, we have the opportunity to ask what kind of person we want to be and how we have measured up,” the president’s statement read.

“Just as individuals can seek renewal, so too can nations. This past year has seen encouraging progress for our nation,” Biden continued. “More Americans are securing the dignity of a good-paying job. Fewer children are living in poverty. With COVID-19 no longer the same disruptive threat it was, families can once more gather around the Rosh Hashanah dinner table and sit together in their synagogues.”

While stopping short of his definitive statement last week that the pandemic is over, Biden again downplayed the COVID-19 virus. He also pushed the midterm election talking point about restoring the nation’s soul that served him well in 2020.

“At the same time, we have much more work to do to realize the values that bind us as Americans and to restore the soul of our nation,” the statement added. “In the coming year, we must not only look inward, but also look to each other. We must rebuild our communities through empathy and acts of kindness, bridging the gap between the world we see and the future we seek.”

The focus ignored 40-year high budget-crushing inflation, rampant crime permeating many large Democrat-run urban areas, aided and abetted by progressive left prosecutors and their criminal-friendly quest to ensure equity, and the growing sexualization of children, these being the real kitchen table issues that are likely to shape the November election.

First gentleman Douglas Emhoff also got in on the political messaging, penning an op-ed for USA Today that talked about the importance of fighting against hate and anti-Semitism.

“As we look forward to the new year, we must continue working toward building an inclusive society for all that is free of bigotry and bias, and commit ourselves to combating antisemitism and hatred wherever it exists,” Emhoff wrote, while calling attention to a 2018 trip he and Vice President Kamala Harris took to the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, the site of a shooting that left 11 dead.
