On the occasion of the joyful celebrations of Rosh Ha-shanah 5777, Yom Kippur and Sukkot, I am especially happy to send to you and to the Jewish community of Rome my most sincere wishes.  My thoughts extend also to the Jewish community throughout the world, in hopes that the coming festivities may be for all, harbingers of abundant blessings.  May the Almighty grant us peace and an unceasing desire to promote it.  In his eternal mercy, may he grant hope and serenity to our days and strengthen the cordial ties of friendship between us.
