“It is my great pleasure to write a message of support and congratulations to Victoria’s Jewish Community to mark the beginning of Passover in 2013.

Passover is a commemoration of the courage of the Jewish people. Jewish identity has been strengthened in the many struggles over the centuries and during Passover, the descendants of those who fled the hand of Pharaoh continue to pay tribute to the bravery of their ancestors.

Victoria’s Jewish community is one of the most diverse and dynamic communities in this state. The community’s great philanthropic spirit and culture understands the value of giving back to society and helping those in need. Victoria and Australia are richer for the social, cultural and economic contribution of the Jewish community.

Passover brings families together to observe, to reflect and to remember. As you gather with your loved ones this year I take this opportunity to wish you a meaningful and kosher Pesach.”

The Hon Dr Denis Napthine MP

Premier of Victoria
