Boris wishes a happy and healthy Passover to London's Jewish Community

In recognition of the start of the Passover festival, Boris Johnson today released a statement:

“I want to wish the very best to London’s entire Jewish community celebrating the Passover festival.

“I’m proud that London is a fantastically diverse city, boasting not just a great cultural and ethnic mix but also a great mix of ages. I am very aware of the contributions made to our city by London’s Jewish community in many areas, such as the arts, medicine, business and politics.

“Today I visited the Jewish Community Centre in Redbridge and saw first-hand the great work volunteers do there supporting older Londoners. 

“I wish a happy and healthy Passover to you and your family. Chag Sameach.”
