WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chair Sharon Day released the following Passover message:
“This evening, Jewish families mark the beginning of Passover. As friends and loved ones gather around the Seder table, I want to wish them a happy and blessed celebration,” said Chairman Priebus.
“Passover is a time to commemorate the ancient story of the great Exodus, and it’s a time to celebrate triumph over oppression--a message that rings as true today as it did thousands of years ago.”
“Americans of all faiths can find meaning in the rich symbolism, traditions, and customs of Passover,” said Co-Chair Day. “And during these eight days, we all can rededicate ourselves to stand for the values of liberty and justice.
“We’re also especially mindful of those celebrating in Israel and the importance of our two nations’ shared ties.”
“To all who are celebrating, may you be surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones tonight and throughout these festival days. Happy Passover and Chag Sameach.”
