Astorino_RobWESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — April 14, 2014 — On the eve of Passover 5774, I want to take this opportunity to extend greetings to all my friends in the Jewish Community.

Passover is a holiday rich in symbolism as Jews worldwide commemorate and celebrate their deliverance from bondage in Egypt centuries ago. Jewish tradition instructs Jews to observe the Passover experience as if they themselves were the ones liberated. As we look to the future, we also must constantly keep in mind the past. 

The Jewish struggle for freedom and dignity millennia ago resonates in our society today. Yesterday’s tragic targeting of Jews in Kansas reminds us that society is not free from the worst impulses of bigotry and intolerance.

Sheila and I wish all of you a Chag Kasher V’sameach (Kosher and Joyous Holiday).
