Rosh Hashanah reminds us of the power of hope, the importance of faith, and the unyielding belief that our best days are ahead of us. For Jewish communities across America and around the world, these 'Days of Awe' are an opportunity to stop and reflect on what each of us can do to perfect our union and repair our world.
Each year, the High Holidays compel all who celebrate to reexamine their lives and ask a simple question: what kind of person do I wish to be? It is the same question that all of us — Jewish or not — should ask ourselves in this moment of widespread struggle and pain. What kind of people do we wish to be? What kind of country do we wish to be? The message of Rosh Hashanah compels all of us to forge a future of kindness and compassion. It calls us to fulfill our responsibilities to treat our fellow human beings with dignity, decency, and respect. It inspires us to make real the promise of our values by protecting public health; preserving our planet; working toward racial equity; stamping out anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry; reaffirming our identity as a nation of immigrants; and pursuing peace and security at home, in Israel, and throughout the world.
I know how much Jewish families wish they could gather side-by-side at the dinner table tonight, dip apples in honey to invoke a sweet new year, and sit with old friends in their usual seats at the synagogue. That can't happen right now, and I recognize how painful that can be. But the tradition of the High Holidays reminds us that we can find purpose in our pain, solace in our sorrow, and hope in the face of adversity.
As the calendar shifts to 5781, I join with Jewish Americans in looking forward to a new chapter of purpose, solace, and hope — a year of progress and possibility, of light and love. May all who celebrate have your prayers heard and your faith rewarded, and may you be inscribed in the Book of Life. On behalf of Jill, Kamala, Doug, and each of our families, I wish you all a happy, healthy, and sweet new year. Shana Tova.

RALEIGH - The North Carolina House Democratic Caucus raised more than $1.5 million between Caucus fundraising, Member fundraising and Candidate fundraising, completing the single largest day of fundraising in Caucus history, smashing a record set previously this year. 
“The House Democratic Caucus has continued to set fundraising records this cycle because our message of building a brighter North Carolina is resonating,” said Amanda Eubanks, NC House Democratic Caucus Deputy Director. “Voters from Murphy to Manteo know what’s at stake in this election and we are going to continue fundraising, organizing, and communicating through November 3 to put an end to the NC GOP decade of corruption.” 
North Carolina joined forces with legislative caucuses in Texas, Arizona and Pennsylvania. The effort combined social media as well as partnerships with national organizations, including a Broadway star and Governor Roy Cooper, participation from Fight For Reform, End Citizens United, Let America Vote, the DLCC, National Democratic Redistricting Committee and others. 
“After another deceitful week from Republican House Leadership we are doubling down in our efforts to flip the House in November,” said Dana Walton, NC House Democratic Caucus Executive Director. “Health care, education, fair maps are all on the ballot and hardworking North Carolinians deserve leaders in Raleigh who are going to put their needs over special interests.” 
The North Carolina House Democrats are working to flip six Republicans held seats to retake the chamber majority this November, and move North Carolina forward. 
"We are proud to stand with the NC House Caucus and our incredible slate of candidates in this effort,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “North Carolina Republicans have been a model for the worst behavior in the country, from refusing to expand Medicaid and give health care to more than half a million North Carolinians to defunding public schools and leaving them to scramble, and they've used extreme partisan gerrymandering to keep voters from holding them accountable for their extremist record. If we flip the North Carolina House, we can stop gerrymandering in its tracks and give North Carolinians the new leadership they deserve.”

Biden for President released a new batch of ads nationally and in battleground states, including Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, that address the concerns of millions of Black Americans who fear their lives are at risk under a second Trump administration. 
Airing nationally on television and digital platforms, the new ‘Shop Talk’ ad series incorporates socially distanced conversations among Black men at a Black-owned barber shop in North Carolina. The first two 30-second ads of the series, “Shop Talk Our Right” and “Shop Talk Trust” showcase Black men discussing their support for Vice President Biden and Senator Harris and trusting in their leadership to guide Americans to a better tomorrow. 
"’We see what this President's currently doing. We've got 170,000 Americans dead because of COVID. There's this lack of trust,’ explained Antoine, one of the Black men featured in the ‘Shop Talk Trust’ ad,” as reported by CBS News.
“One ad in particular features Malik Gary, a 22-year-old essential worker from Tallahassee, Florida who has no choice but to take risks associated with COVID-19 in order to keep his job,” as reported by BET. “Gary mirrors many Black millennials in the fact that he is not just sitting back and waiting for the world to change. He wants to be a part of that change.”
“The Biden-Harris Build Back Better platform is one of the most comprehensive economic reinvestment plans I’ve ever seen from a presidential campaign,” Milliones told Essence. “The commitments made to invest billions into Black businesses, small business and low-moderate income communities is pivotal and should be taken seriously.” 
The latest ad release shows the campaign’s continued push to reach Black voters while offering a snapshot of how different groups of Black Americans are dealing with the reality of the current moment. The ads are all part of Vice President Biden and Senator Harris’ commitment to earning every vote from Black Americans and the campaign’s investment in African American media, which is the largest ever for a general election campaign.
