Passover: The Season of Freedom
"And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses.." Exodus 12:14-15
Passover or Pesach in Hebrew is a spring Biblical festival in the Judaic faith which celebrates the exodus from Egypt and the Israelites’ freedom from slavery to the Egyptians.
The Feast of Passover was the first of the festivals to be commanded by God for the nation of Israel to observe. It is celebrated with a traditional meal called the Seder which features matza (unleavened bread) and other food items symbolic of various aspects of the Exodus. It is one of the three “pilgrimage” festivals in Scripture in which during Biblical times all Jews were commanded to travel to Jerusalem in observation of the holiday.
Passover takes place in the spring, during the Hebrew month of Nisan. This year Passover begins on the evening of 10 April and ends on 17 April.
