Why Do We Celebrate Passover?
Passover, or Pesach, is the first of the major Jewish festivals mentioned in the Bible. Passover celebrates God freeing the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, led by the prophet Moses. The story of Moses and of Passover can be found in the Bible's Book of Exodus.

Each year during this holiday, families gather to retell the story of Passover and renew its message of hope, redemption and faith.
When Is Passover?
First Night of Passover Begins at Sundown
In 2009, it begins sundown on Wednesday, April 08 and ends Thursday, April 16. The 2009 Seders fall on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
The first two and last two days of Passover are considered the most important. These are observed as “Full Festival” days, with no work, special prayers and holiday meals. The intervening days are festival weekdays, or business as usual. Throughout the holiday, no leavened bread or foods are to be eaten.
