Governor Quinn Statement on Passover

CHICAGO – Governor Pat Quinn today issued the following statement on the beginning of Passover:

“Tonight, families across Illinois will come together to celebrate the beginning of Passover and reflect on the sacrifices their ancestors made as they sought a new life of freedom and opportunity.

“In the Book of Exodus, we learn of the Jews’ freedom from slavery in Egypt and their newfound freedom under the guidance of Moses. It is a story that crosses religions and provides hope and inspiration to millions.

“May all have a happy and enlightening Passover. Chag sameach!”
