On the evening after the seventh day of Pesach, which is a holy rest day, Jews of North African origin, particularly Morocco, celebrate Mimouna as part of the Pesach festivities. The origin of the celebrations is unclear, but is usually associated with the anniversary of the death of Rabbi Maimon ben Abraham, the father of the great medieval Rabbi Moses Maimonides (also known as Rambam).

President Barack Obama,
My dear Friend,
It is my great pleasure to welcome you tonight.
I was moved by the way in which you spoke to the hearts of the young Israelis.
Our youngsters, in times of need, are always willing to stand up and defend their country.
Today, you have seen how much the same young people long for peace.
How enthusiastic they were, how engaged they were, listening to the vision of peace which you so beautifully portrayed.
This morning several rockets were shot from the Gaza Strip towards civilian targets, including Sderot, which you have visited.
From here, in the name of all of us, I want to convey our love to the inhabitants of the South.
Who carry this heavy burden so courageously.
And continue to plow their fields, plant their trees and raise their children. It is an inspiration to each of us.
Today the enemies of peace spoke in the only language they know, the language of terror.
I am convinced that together we will defeat terror.
