Chag Sameach! Passover Starts Tomorrow Evening

Passover Starts Tomorrow Evening

This year, Passover will be observed from Friday, April 22nd to Saturday, April 30th.

Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) is a yearly celebration commemorating the Israelites’ departure from Egypt. The festival is called Passover because God passed over the Israelites’ households when the final plague killed the firstborn of each Egyptian family, having the Pharaoh release the Israelites from slavery and sending them out of Egypt.

Because the Israelites had to leave Egypt in a hurry, they didn’t have time to let their bread rise. As a result, a major tradition in celebrating Passover is avoiding leavened bread. Instead, people celebrating Passover enjoy matzah.

During the first night of Passover, most Jewish families enjoy an important meal known as the Seder. The meal follows a particular order and is rich with symbolism. Passover lasts for eight days. This year, Passover begins on the evening of Friday, April 22nd and ends on the night of Saturday, April 30th.
