Mayor Vincent C. Gray Offers Passover and Holy Week Greetings

Passover and Holy Week Greetings

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Mayor Vincent C. Gray today offered holiday greetings to the District’s Jewish and Christian communities as they observe, respectively, Passover and Holy Week.

“As many District residents observe some of the highest and most meaningful holy days in the Judeo-Christian tradition, I want to offer my wishes for a blessed and reflective Passover and Holy Week to the District’s Jewish and Christian communities,” Mayor Gray said.

He continued: “These holidays commemorate not only specific religious beliefs, but also universal human themes – the triumph of justice over oppression and the victory of joy over sorrow and life over death. My prayer during this holiday season is that all residents of the District – regardless of their religious beliefs or lack thereof – will work to make our city and our world a more just, joyful and life-affirming place.”
