The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, said:
As celebrations for the festival of Pesach begin, I want to send my warmest wishes to Jewish communities in Britain and across the world. Passover marks the release of the Children of Israel from slavery. It is a joyous time for Jews around the world as they come together to celebrate liberty and freedom.
I wish you and your family a Hag Pesach Sameach [Happy Passover].
