The Prime Minister said:

I want to send my very best wishes to Jewish people in Britain and across the world as the festival of Passover begins.

Passover marks the Children of Israel’s release from slavery – representing the triumph of freedom over tyranny, of hope over despair.

Last month I was in Israel, where I reaffirmed one of our biggest hopes: for Jewish people to feel free and safe in their homeland. So this Passover, I want us to renew our commitment to peace between Israel and its neighbours.

As we remember the suffering and persecution faced by Jewish people for thousands of years, let’s also reflect upon their resilience, their steadfastness and their extraordinary contribution to Britain and the world.

Once again, let me wish you and your family Chag Sameach and a good Pesach to you all.
