Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday quoted the Passover haggadah when he said, “In every generation enemies rise up to destroy us but G-d saves us from them.”

Speaking after a visit to a matza bakery in Kfar Chabad, Netanyahu told leaders of the Chabad Jewish outreach movement,”The haggadah mentions four sons – wise, wicked, simple and the one who does not know how to ask – but each one has a Jewish spark and you watch over this Jewish spark.”

Local Chabad leaders and rabbis briefed Netanyahu on the preparations to hold Passover seders at the approximately 250 Chabad houses throughout Israel and the 3,000 Chabad houses around the world. The rabbis told him that eating the matza is an expression of the belief that the Jewish People can withstand any pressure and asked that he continue to stand up for the freedom of the State of Israel.

Inside the matza bakery, Netanyahu  said, “At home, I have eaten this matza for years. Today, for the first time, I am also preparing it myself. I am very excited. I wish the entire Jewish People a Happy Passover.”
