Crown Prince Alexander congratulates Serbian Jews on the occasion of Passover

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia has extended his congratulations in connection with the Jewish Passover holiday to the Serbian Jews. The congratulations were extended to the ambassador from Israel to Serbia, Mrs Alona Fisher-Kamm, as well as the Chief Rabbi of Serbia, Mr Isaac Asiel, and Dr Ruben Fuks, President of the Jewish Community Banja Luka. The message was also sent to and other prominent representatives of the Jewish community in Serbia and published on the website of the Serbian Royal Family.

The message from His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander II of Serbia:

“With the greatest pleasure, I congratulate you and all the members of the Jewish community the Passover, the great Jewish holiday in commemoration of the release of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt. I wish you to spend this great holiday while gathered at Seder dinner with your family and friends, remembering the exodus of Israelites and passing this memory from one generation to another. I wish you to celebrate in peace and serenity that you and your family are blessed with good health and happiness”.

The Serbian Royal Family has also initiated massive humanitarian work in Serbia. Last year the Serbian Crown Prince Couple held a series of charity events throughout Canada. So, in recognition of her charitable work, the Crown Princess received the Pope Francis Award for Charity and Leadership.

The Crown Princess has always done charitable work. During her interview with Royal Central this summer, the Crown Princess said: “I had parents that taught me the joy of giving, not the joy of taking. And they didn’t just tell me; they lived their life by giving. They prepared me for my role without knowing what my future would be. I was very young, and when you learn the joy of giving when you are young, you never forget it. I prayed to God for an opportunity to give of myself since that is happiness, and God gave me Alexander and a whole country. So when you pray, you have to make sure that is what you want.”
