Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has congratulated Jewish people across the world, particularly those living in Iran, on the occasion of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

In a message on his Twitter on Sunday, Zarif said, “As the sun gives way to the moon, I wish all my Jewish compatriots and Jews worldwide a very Happy New Year filled with peace and harmony. Happy Rosh Hashanah.”

Zarif’s tweet also shared photos of ceremonies held by Iran’s Jewish minority in their synagogues.
