Greetings for Passover

Professor Roberto Di Segni, Chief Rabbi of Rome
meeting Pope Francis, 31 August 2017
On Thursday (29 March 2018), Pope Francis sent cordial and fraternal greetings to the Jewish Community of Rome.

His greetings were expressed in a message sent to the Chief Rabbi of Rome, Ricardo Di Segni.

May the Almighty bless and accompany the journey of the beloved Jewish People.  May the Most High allow us to grow ever more in friendship and to be witnesses of peace and harmony, he wrote.

The Holy Father concluded with a request for prayers and with the greeting: Chag sameach - Happy Feast (in Hebrew).  The Rabbi also sent Easter greetings to Pope Francis.  This year, the dates of Passover and Easter coincide.
