Archbishop Charles J. Chaput has extended best wishes to the Jewish community in advance of the upcoming Passover holiday.

“Passover calls to mind the miracle of divine intervention in the history of the Chosen People. Our Heavenly Father not only liberated the Jews from Pharaoh’s enslavement, but also set them on a path of divinely guided life in freedom," Chaput wrote on behalf of himself, the clergy and laity of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.


“There are new threats today to authentic freedom and human existence. All too many in our day eat the bread of affliction. These threats can cause us to be afraid and to feel abandoned. Yet Passover reminds us that we are not alone and can always rely on the Almighty to intervene and save us,” he continued.

Chaput also thanked the Jewish community “for its noble generosity” during Pope Francis’ visit in September.
