“I am delighted to send my best wishes to the Jewish community in Britain and around the world as the festival of Passover begins and many celebrate the values of liberty and freedom. This festival marks not just the Children of Israel’s escape from slavery, but also the start of Spring and the opportunity for renewal and change.

“I wish you and your family a Hag Pesach Sameach [Happy Passover].”
