Bennett explains the government's programs designed to help Jews abroad, who he says are facing anti-Semitism, security threats, a loss of Jewish identity and a feeling of disconnections with their Israeli brethren.

The Ministry of Diaspora Affairs has already set in motion a number of programs to help deal with these issues, Bennett says in the video, including "Com.unity," which sends delegations abroad to study the challenges facing Jews, "Project Momentum," which bring Jewish mothers to Israel, and the providing of assistance to Jewish refugees caught in war zones.

"Brothers and sisters, Passover commemorates the birth of the Jewish nation, a people committed to serving as a light unto the world. It is the light of liberty, unity, and freedom. When we stand united in these values, we are stronger and can provide our children with a future full of Jewish life and hope.I wish everyone everywhere a Happy and Kosher Passover," Bennett concludes in the video.

Naftali Bennett is one of a number of senior Israeli officials, newsmakers and opinion-shapers who will discuss the key issues and challenges facing Israel and the Jewish world at The Jerusalem Post's Annual Conference in New York on May 22. The conference is open to some 1,500 attendees. Click here to reserve your seat.
