Good afternoon, everyone.
How sad we are today, heartbroken, over what’s happening in Mexico City, a tragic loss of life and destruction again. And of course we pray for them and continue to pray for Americans on Puerto Rico and in the Virgin Islands, Florida, everyone who has been battered by Harvey in Texas, in Florida, by Irma, and now Hurricane Maria.
Very honored to be here with all of our colleagues and the Congressional Black Caucus, of course, is on board with all of this. I am honored to be here with Congresswoman Alma Adams and our Ranking Member Mr. [Bobby] Scott and our colleagues to welcome all of you to Washington D.C. and to commend you for the difference you have made already and recognizing much more needs to be done as we see on this beautiful card.
Tonight, Jewish families across the United States and the world will observe Rosh Hashanah and the beginning of the Days of Awe. This special, sacred period is a time for reflection and renewal – an opportunity to contemplate the past and take steps toward a better, more hopeful future.
Good afternoon, everyone! Thank you, all. Good afternoon, everyone. It’s an honor to be here with each and every one of you at the invitation of a great Member of Congress. Thank you for sending Doris Matsui to the Congress of the United States!
