On Passover, "we are urged to remember that we were once slaves in Egypt and that accordingly, we should act with humility and show civility to the strangers dwelling among us," Ambassador to US Michael Oren said on Monday.

Writing on his Facebook, Oren stated that during the Seder we are also told to remember that in every generation "forces arise seeking our destruction."

"These two ordinances of remembrance are especially poignant this Passover," Oren stated, ending his note by wishing everybody a 'chag sameach.'
