Holiday Dates

Pesach, known in English as Passover, is the most widely observed Jewish holiday and commemorates the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt following generations of slavery. Passover begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nisan which occurs in the spring and is observed for a period of eight days. The most significant observance related to this holiday is the avoidance of chametz which is anything leavened and made from the five major grains (wheat, rye, barley, oats and spelt). This is to reminds us of the urgency our ancestors felt during their flight from Pharoah as they were forced to leave before their bread had time to rise. On the first two nights of Passover, special family meals called seders are prepared. During these seders, the story of Passover is retold and various rituals are observed to remind us of the significance of this holiday.
