      Peres: This Year's Passover the Best in Recent Years

      President Shimon Peres said Monday night that this year's just-concluded Passover celebrations were the best in recent years.

      Speaking at the central Jerusalem reception for the traditional Moroccan Jewish celebration of Mimouna, Peres said there was never such a concentration of Jews (close to seven million), such a flourishing economy, or such military capability. He said the fact that 2.5 million people toured the country during the holiday was cause for celebration.
