The Deputy Prime Minister reflects on the festival's celebration of self-reliance and the determination to be free.

The full message is below:

I’d like to wish Jewish communities across the UK a very happy Passover.

Passover is one of the most important and special dates in the Jewish calendar.

It is a festival that celebrates self-reliance and the determination to be free, despite the difficulties that might stand in your way.

It is also time for reflection, where the exodus story is told around the seder table and passed from one generation to the next.

For everyone who is celebrating Passover, I wish you ‘Chag Sameach’.
