Williams' Statement In Observance Of Passover

April 5th, 2023

Press Release

"Chag Kasher V’Sameach to the Jewish community as the celebration of Passover begins - I wish a happy and kosher holiday to all.

"Through the story of the Israelites’ strength and perseverance through suffering, Passover reminds us that with hope, with resolve, any obstacle can be overcome. There are many seemingly incessant obstacles in this moment, including hatred and anti-Semitism we must unite to oppose.

"In sharing the ancient story, in sharing sacred traditions, we await the miracle of full redemption - ever progressing, moving forward, pursuing deliverance from our bonds and our tormentors. In the spirit of Passover, any obstacle can be overcome - with hope and resolve in equal measure.

"May everyone observing have a peaceful and meaningful Passover. Chag Sameach."
