In Hebrew, Friedman repeated the famous final phrase in the Haggadah, "next year in Jerusalem" and then wished viewers a happy Passover.

"This year, because of the great efforts of our administration, in particular our president, we can say 'next year in Jerusalem' and it has a special and unique meaning," he added, referencing the impending US embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, set to take place in May.
