Lukashenko congratulated Jews on Passover

The President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, has congratulated the Jewish community on the Passover holiday, reports with reference to the Belarusian leader’s press service

“Dear compatriots! I cordially congratulate you on Passover,” the congratulatory message reads.

“It is a celebration of the loyalty of the Jewish people to their traditions, symbolising the beginning of a long journey to finding the promised land. Today, the memory of the courage and steadfastness of the ancestors gives strength to overcome the difficulties of the modern world, being the key to a bright future,” the Head of State underlined.

The President stressed that Judaism occupies an important place in Belarus’ confessional palette, dozens of religious communities, educational and cultural centres being active in our country. Their charitable and educational work contributes to the strengthening of interethnic friendship, the development of public dialogue and the preservation of civil harmony.

“May Passover bring joy and prosperity to every home, bring together people who are dear to our hearts. I wish you and families strong health, peace and spiritual wealth,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
