In honour of Passover the Right Honourable Prime Minister of Canada, Mr. Stephen Harper met with the executive committee of the Canadian Federation
of Chabad Lubavitch to extend Passover greetings to the entire Jewish
community.

The Prime Minister presented the delegation of Rabbis with an official letter acknowledging the immense contribution made by the Canadian Jewish community to Canadian society, and conveying his wishes that the blessings associated with Passover continue to touch their lives throughout the year.

The Prime Minister was then presented with a leather bound prayer book, emphasizing the universal message of so many of the prayers, the relationship between G‑d and all of humanity.

The meeting was of particular significance as it marked the 104th birthday of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson of blessed memory.
Although the Lubavitcher Rebbe has passed away his legacy lives on in the over 3500 Chabad Lubavitch centres world-wide and the over 80 here in Canada.
