Passover is celebrated for 8 days and always begins on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan.Passover celebrates the Jewish people's freedom from Egyptian bondage that took place over 3,000 years ago, as told in the Book of Exodus. Under the reign of Pharaoh Rameses II, the leader Moses led his people out of Egypt after a series of 10 plagues that Moses warned the Pharaoh would devastate his people, if he refused to let them go. After each plague, the Pharaoh agreed to let the Hebrews go, but the Pharaoh soon changed his mind and continued to hold the Hebrews as slaves. Finally, after the 10th plague, the Pharoah let the Hebrews go for good. However, after the Hebrews left in a hurry, in fact so quickly that they did not have time to bake any bread for the trip to Canaan, and instead baked unleavened bread, called Matzah. The Pharaoh changed his mind and sent his army into the Sinai desert after the Hebrews. When they saw the Egyptian army fast approaching toward them, they called out in despair to Moses. Fortunately, g-d intervened and commanded Moses to strike his staff on the waters of the Red Sea. G-d then commanded Moses to strike the waters of the Red Sea again, just as the Egyptian army followed them through the parted Red Sea. The waters came together again, drowning the entire Egyptian army and the Hebrews were saved Since the time of Jewish freedom from Egyptian slavery, Jews have celebrated this historical event by having a feast called the 'Seder'. The word 'Seder' means 'order' and refers to the order of historical events recalled in the Passover meal. The story of Passover is read from a book called the 'Haggadah'. While the main story of Passover is read by Jews the world over, local customs and traditions have changed over time, so that the festival has been adapted to reflect the life and routine of individual communities. Passover celebrates this history. The first 2 nights of the 8 day holiday are celebrated with lavish meals in which the stories and history of Passover are celebrated. Passover is a celebration of Freedom. This holiday helps to remind us of the freedom we must protect and cherish. We are taught as well that people can and have been stripped of their right for freedom. Passover helps remind us to help ensure freedom for all of G-ds creation.
