President Barack Obama’s Rosh Hashanah 2012 greeting

September 13, 2012

[sent to the White House]

Dear President Obama:

I am a Jewish American and I’d like to thank you for your Rosh Hashanah greeting. It was a very gracious gesture. Your message of reconciliation is especially important and echoes some of the most important ideals in the Jewish tradition and in the American tradition. I especially appreciate your continued commitment to “the unbreakable bond” our country shares with the State of Israel.

UPDATE: It took a little less than a month, but Obama wrote me back a boilerplate thank you letter with some reminders about the achievements he made in his first term.
