President Shimon Peres on Thursday released a message to the Israeli and Jewish people, with wishes of peace, joy, health, security, economic growth and strengthened bonds between Israeli and Diaspora Jewry.

Noting democratic movements across the region, Peres said that changes in the past year present great opportunities both for Israel and its neighbors. Addressing the social movements that dominated Israel over the summer, he said that he was uplifted to see hundreds of thousands of Israelis raising their voice in unison, which raised an opportunity for change that "must not be wasted."

Bonds between Israeli and Diaspora Jewry, Peres said, should be strengthened through education about the other and "a vision for the future of the Jewish people based on the the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam and peace."
