Passover


Passover is a celebration of freedom. It’s one of the oldest, continuously celebrated holidays, and one of the most important Jewish holidays (specifically in the Book of Exodus.) Passover recounts when Jews fled their homes in hurry to protect their first born sons from slaughter. They had no time to make meals or wait for bread to rise. (That’s why Jews eat unleavened bread during Passover.)

Passover begins at sunset on the 15th day of the 1st month on the Jewish (lunar) calendar. It lands in April or May on the modern calendar. Passover lasts a week.

If you had limited time, and had to carry what you took, what few things would you take with you while leaving your home, homeland, and perhaps family behind?
