Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė has extended greetings to the Jewish community in Lithuania and Litvaks around the world on the occasion of Pesah.

‘Pesah—a time-honoured tradition celebrated for thousands of years— is a testimony to the spiritual rebirth of the Jewish people and their quest for freedom. It is an important reminder, particularly today, that only a free people can overcome the most terrible hardships, find happiness, and build their lives and their country with courage. The spirit of this special feast teaches us that, through faith, we can cross the driest desert, the deepest sea, and reach the promised land.

I send my warm greetings to all the Jews in Lithuania and the world on the occasion of Pesach, and I wish that the joy of communion will accompany the Seder dinner, and that faith, love, and hope will never leave your hearts and homes. Hag Pesah Sameah - Happy Passover!’ reads Prime Minister’s letter of greetings.
