Statement by Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito Re: Passover

“This week, thousands of families across New York City will come together to celebrate Passover – a powerful commemoration of the historic journey of the Jewish people to freedom, whose lessons still resonate with us today. Passover is a time to celebrate traditions and enjoy time with family and friends, reminding us all that we can find joy even amidst these times of uncertainty in our country.

On behalf of the New York City Council, I would like to extend a Happy Passover to the members of our Jewish community in New York City. Chag Pesach Kasher V’Sameach!
