What is Passover?

This holiday commemorates the departure of the nation of Israel from Egypt. Pesach marks the birth of the Jewish people as a nation led by Moshe (Moses) over 3000 years ago.

This is as much a celebration of our spiritual freedom as the physical liberation from slavery.

How do you celebrate Passover?

The highlight of Pesach is the observance of the Seder, a unique ceremony performed on the first two evenings of Passover. At the Seder, we eat different special foods, we tell the story of our departure from Egypt, we sing songs and praises, and say special prayers.

Pesach (Passover) begins on the night of the fifteenth day of the month of Nissan and lasts for eight days.
