Rivlin delivers Easter greetings to Christian leaders

President Reuven Rivlin speaks with Christian leaders in Jerusalem today to give his traditional Easter greeting.

Speaking with the Greek Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III; the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem Nourhan Manougian; head of the Latin Patriarchate Pierbattista Pizzabella; the Custos of the Holy Land, Francesco Patton; and the Greek Melkite Catholic Archbishop of Galilee Youssef Matta, Rivlin said: “I’m sorry that this year circumstances don’t allow us to hold our annual Easter meeting, a tradition we have upheld for the last six years.”

Greek Patriarch Theophilos III wished Rivlin a happy Passover, while the Armenian patriarch said that while times are difficult, he was sure “Israeli brains will find a solution shortly.”
