Iran’s President Wishes Jews a Happy Rosh Hashana

BRICS/SCO Summits - Russia 2015

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani tweeted out best wishes to Jews all over the world for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year that begins at sunset on Sunday.

Rouhani, seen as a “moderate” compared to his firebrand predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who famously questioned whether the Holocaust happened, has played an instrumental role in the nuclear deal moving through Congress at the moment.

 

IRAN JEWISH ROSH HASHANAH

 

Some Jewish lawmakers, such as Sen. Chuck Schumer, have voiced concerns over the deal and the historical rivalry between Iran and Israel, while others are supporting it.

 

This isn’t the first time Rouhani has extended new year greetings to Jews: the tradition began in 2013, when he was first elected to office. But Rouhani has admitted that he doesn’t control his own Twitter account: at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2014, he confessed his Rosh Hashana tweet for the previous year was written by “friends.”
