Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Passover

“This weekend, our Jewish brothers and sisters will gather together with family and friends to begin the observance of Passover.

“This holiday celebrates the liberation from oppression, reminding us all that through faith and perseverance we can overcome adversity with hope for a more fair and just future.

“As New Yorkers gather for seder on Saturday night, let the evening serve as a call to recommit ourselves and our communities to justice and bringing an end to discrimination of all kinds. Chag Sameach.”
