"While we are preparing to celebrate the Festival of Freedom and the struggle of the ancient Jews against bondage and slavery, the Iranian regime continues to threaten Israel and to spread terror throughout the Middle East,” said Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon.

A model pre-Passover Seder conducted by Israeli Ambassador the United Nations Danny Danon was attended by more than 60 ambassadors and senior diplomats from all over the world on Tuesday in honor of the upcoming Passover holiday.

“While we are preparing to celebrate the Festival of Freedom and the struggle of the ancient Jews against bondage and slavery, the Iranian regime continues to threaten Israel and to spread terror throughout the Middle East,” Danon told the attendees.

The Seder was organized by Israel’s Mission to the United Nations, in cooperation with the European Coalition for Israel, and included ambassadors from four continents.

Founding Director of the European Coalition Tomas Sandell stressed the importance of the experience, noting that it would “help explain, among many other things, the long and unbroken connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel.”
