Read Joe Biden’s Passover Message

April 5, 2023

This morning, President Biden published an op-ed on CNN reflecting on rising antisemitism, which we wanted to share before you sit down for your Seders. On the eve of Passover, President Biden wrote:

“Rest assured that I am committed to the safety of the Jewish people. I stand with you. America stands with you. Under my presidency, we continue to condemn antisemitism at every turn. Failure to call out hate is complicity. Silence is complicity. And we will not be silent.”

Read the President’s full op-ed and sign up to join the White House’s virtual “People’s Seder” on Monday, April 10 at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT.

We also wanted to share our special Jewish Dems Advocacy Seder Plate and Seder companion. This Seder supplement looks at the parallels between the Passover story, current events, and steps we can take to ensure those elected to office represent our values. We hope you’ll take action with JDCA, which advocates for policy, educates and mobilizes Jewish voters, and elects Democrats, all consistent with our core values.

Thank you for your support and partnership, and wishing you a Chag Pesach Sameach — Happy Passover.
