Passover (Pesach), which celebrates the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, begins on the fifteenth of the month of Nisan and continues for seven days, through Nisan 21, though many Diaspora communities celebrate it for eight days.
During the eight days of Passover, we re-live the Exodus from Egypt. At the Seder meals on the first two nights of Passover, we read the Haggadah, a book which tells us the story and meaning of Passover, and we eat Matzah and other foods which remind us of the days of slavery and the golden freedom which we all enjoy today. For all of Passover it is forbidden to eat Chametz (leavening). Passover also was one of the three festivals (Sukkot and Shavuot were the other two) on which our ancestors made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to bring an offering at the Temple. Today, Passover has lost none of its ancient meaning as a timeless story of liberation from slavery.
