EDMONTON, AB (April 22, 2016): Dr. David Swann released the following statement today to mark the beginning of Passover:
“Today is the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan, which means Albertans of the Jewish faith across the province will be gathering tonight with their loved ones to observe the first Passover Seder. This ritual celebrates the deliverance of the ancient Israelites from slavery, and reminds us all of the many struggles the Jewish people have faced down the centuries.
“I wish to extend my warmest wishes and those of the Alberta Liberals to all those celebrating Passover this week. Chag sameach!”
