Smith issues statement marking the start of Passover
EDMONTON, AB (March 25, 2013): Wildrose Official Opposition Leader Danielle Smith issued the following statement marking the beginning of Passover: “Today, Jewish Albertans and millions of people around the world will be gathering with loved ones to celebrate the beginning of Passover, which commemorates the ancient Hebrew exodus from slavery.
“For our Jewish community, Passover is a profoundly important event that gives families the opportunity to observe their faith and remember the resilience of their people amid impossible odds. “As families pass on the Passover story to the next generation as they sit around the seder table, we encourage Albertans to join in celebrating the strength of our Jewish community and their contribution to our Alberta heritage. “On behalf of the Wildrose Official Opposition, I extend my very best wishes for all Albertans marking the celebration of Passover this week.” VIDEO of the statement can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yG4Hov_y88M&feature=youtu.be
