A Brief Description of Passover

Passover1

 

The Jewish people celebrate Passover to remember their liberation from slavery in Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. Passover begins the evening of Friday, April 22 and ends the evening of Saturday, April 30. The story of Exodus described in the Torah is estimated to have taken place around 1300 BCE, and has been celebrated by the Jewish faith ever since. When the Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise.

In commemoration, for Passover no leavened bread is eaten, this is the reason Passover was called the feast of unleavened bread in the Torah or Old Testament. Instead, Matzo is eaten. It is a thin, crisp unleavened bread, eaten by Jews during Passover. This spring festival starts of the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan and lasts either seven days (in Israel) or eight days in Reform or Progressive Jewish religions. The story goes, God inflicted ten plagues over the Egyptian oppressors to help the Children of Israel escape their sordid pasts.
