HOLIDAYS

Obama's Holy Message

During this Holy Week, it’s not just a pastor or a rabbi telling you what’s important—it’s Barack Obama. Falling just between Passover and Easter, the president’s weekly video address, released today, emphasized the inter-faith spirit of togetherness fostered around these high holidays. “As we celebrate Passover, Easter, and this time of renewal, let's find strength in our shared resolve and purpose in our common aspirations," Obama said. "If we can do that, then not only will we fulfill the sacred meaning of these holy days, but we will fulfill the promise of our country as a leader around the world."
