Velazquez Offers Passover Greetings

Press Release

New York, NY – Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) released the following statement:

“This year, Passover comes during trying times and carries special significance.  Observers are having to adapt to celebrating Passover amidst a global pandemic and isolation.  While many of our friends and neighbors cannot gather physically, it is my hope that our community continues to find peace, warmth and strength through one another. Throughout New York, members of our Jewish community are discovering other ways to stay connected and once again recall the story of freedom, resilience and redemption in the face of hardship. Certainly, that message is particularly meaningful, this year. To all those who are celebrating, I say Chag Sameach.”
