Governor Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal in Jerusalem. (June, 2014)

With Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur approaching, Sandra and I wish our Jewish friends a happy new year and a safe fast. Israel and Georgia have a long-established partnership through government, friendship, business, international trade and tourism, and I wish to continue cultivating those relationships. I had the opportunity to learn more about the Jewish faith and meet with companies that hold an interest in expanding or locating to our state during my recent trade mission to Israel. As the Jewish new year begins, Georgians of all faith join together in prayer for continuing peace in the country.

-Governor and Mrs. Deal
