Jewish New Year started a little bit earlier last night as we celebrated a packed event in the European Parliament with our partners at the European Jewish Community Centre, the Patronage of MEP First Vice-President McGuinness, EPP Vice-President Othmar Karas MEP and the Austrian Presidency with His Excellency Nikolaus Marshik.

Ambassadors, MEPs and distinguished guests toasted the new year, dipped some apple in honey and heard from Rabbi Biederman about the wonderful resurgence of Austrian Jewry before Rabbi Avi Tawil sounded the unmistakable blast of the Shofar.

As you can see we had a lot of fun. The EJA thanks our hosts and guests who made it such a special evening. Shana Tova and a sweet year ahead!
