Passover greetings from the president


President Obama has released his Passover greeting, which includes messages about ending "bondage and repression," as well as combating poverty and hunger.

"As part of a larger global community, we all must work to ensure that our brothers and sisters of every race, religion, culture and nationality are free from bondage and repression, and are able to live in peace," wrote Obama. "As Jewish families gather across America to enjoy the magnificent and hard-earned gift of freedom, let us all be thankful for the gifts that have been bestowed upon us. And at the same time, let us also work to alleviate the suffering, poverty, and hunger of those who are not yet free."
