Prime Minister David Cameron sends greetings to Jewish communities in UK and across the world observing Pesach (Passover).
I send my very best wishes to Jewish communities in Britain and internationally celebrating Passover this year.
The fact that millions of people are observing a festival which is thousands of years old shows the enduring and positive strength of your faith in our world.
And it is right that the story of the Exodus - the freeing of oppressed peoples - is not forgotten. I join you in the hope and determination that a lasting peace can be found for Israel and the wider region.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to praise the British Jewish community for their significant historic and continued contribution to life in the UK, which has helped make Britain the richly diverse and inclusive place it is today.
I wish you a happy and peaceful Pesach.
