Passover begins in March or April, on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan. Most Jews celebrate Passover for eight days, but Jews in Israel, and Reform Jews in other countries, celebrate it for seven days.
Passover is an important Jewish festival commemorating the exodus of the Hebrews and their safe flight across the Red Sea of Exodus.
In order to encourage the Egyptians to allow the Hebrews to leave Egypt intends to, God killed the first-born child in every Egyptian home but passed over the homes of the Israelites, to protect themselves, Hebrews are told to mark their dwellings with lamband's blood so that God can identify thus pass over them that day.
The word 'Pesach' comes from a Hebrew root meaning "pass by" or "to spare". The word 'Passover' comes from a English-Pass'over. It called Passover because God passed over the Hebrews houses when he killed the first-born. The word Passover also refers to the passing over of the Israelites from slavery to freedom.
Throughout the holiday the Orthodox Jew must abstain from eating leavened bread, substituting unleavened bread, usually in the form of matzo. These matzoth recall the unleavened bread eaten by the Hebrews during their flight because they had no time to prepare raised bread. They did not have time to let their bread rise. They made flat, unleavened bread instead. Therefore, Jews eat matzahs instead of leavened bread during Passover. Orthodox Jewish tradition prescribes that, during Passover, meals be prepared and served using sets of utensils and dishes reserved strictly for that festival.
On Passover we make a big meal and we eat many kinds of food like eggs, celery, the head of the fish, potatoes, and more.
