As the sun sets at Passover, Jewish families in Australia and around the globe will come together to find strength in faith, family, fellowship and community.

Scott Morrison

This year, Jewish Australians gather without the restrictions of the pandemic that curtailed so much over the past two years.

We are reminded to “choose life” and we did so during the pandemic. In doing so, we preserved so much and I am grateful for the efforts of the Jewish community over these past two years.

On this Passover, we remember and pray for the men, women and children in Ukraine. Many have fled, others remain in fear of what will be lost in war.

I, and all Australians, join with you in praying for peace and justice. Our prayers, of course, are matched with action.

In the Haggadah, the story of God’s saving action, you tell a story of hope and freedom. We remind ourselves of keeping faith during times of despair, and that in time, faith will ultimately overcome the injustices of oppressors.

Here in Australia, I honour the Jewish community as you have always sought to contribute to the peace of our land, playing your own role in the most successful multicultural and multi-faith nation on Earth.

At this Passover, may your prayers bring hope and healing to your hearts, and to the world that we share.

Chag Pesach Sameach!

The Hon Scott Morrison MP
Prime Minister of Australia
