Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) issued the following statement in advance of the Passover Holiday:


            “To all my friends and neighbors observing Passover, I want to wish a Zeesen Pesach and a joyous celebration with family and friends.

            “Commemorating the story from the Torah of the Exodus from Egypt, Passover is full of ritualistic customs. Through its traditions such as special readings told at every Seder around the world, Passover exemplifies the spirit of community and family coming together.  Not only is it when we pay tribute to the history of the Jewish people, but it is also a time to care for one another.

            “This year, I hope Passover will spark meaningful conversations and an opportunity to connect our shared stories of liberation with people struggling for freedom around the world today. Chag Pesach kasher vesame’ach, wishing a kosher and joyous Passover- to our Jewish neighbors at home and abroad!”
