Passover begins tonight! Send a free Passover eCard to
celebrate the occasion! Passover is an eight-day Jewish festival that
celebrates the emancipation of the Israelites. Jewish families usually
celebrate Passover on the first two nights of the holiday. They hold
seders to retell the story of the Israelites' exodus from Egypt and to
enjoy a festive meal eaten in remembrance of their ancestors' hardships.
During the meal, the youngest child asks the adults four questions
about the significance of the Passover symbols.
Traditional Passover food is kosher and does not include any
“chametz.” Chametz are leavened foods made with wheat, barley, or rye.
When the Israelites fled Egypt, they could not wait for their bread to
rise. Modern-day Jewish families eat unleavened matzo bread during
Passover to honor this part of their history.
To celebrate Passover, enjoy a delicious meal in the company of friends and family. Happy Passover!
