During this time of reflection for the Jewish people, the period between Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement), we, the undersigned, want to share our vision for Greater Cleveland and our country that we are committed to upholding:

A Cleveland and a nation where all live, work, worship, and play together in peace and tolerance.

A Cleveland and a nation where hate and bigotry are condemned and denounced.

A Cleveland and a nation where we build bridges of understanding and collaboration among all people.

A Cleveland and a nation where we, together, sustain and defend the fundamental values upon which America was established.

Together we can ensure the world we live in is the one we want for all of us.

Together we pledge to work towards this vision­ — for ourselves, our families, our communities, our city, our region, and our nation.
