Did you know that the holiday of Passover is celebrated for eight days? In Israel, the holiday is one day shorter- just one week long.

Did you know that the Hebrew word for Passover is Pesach? Like the English name for this holiday, Pesach means passing over, and refers to G-d’s sparing of the firstborn Jewish males during the 10th Plague, which smote all firstborns in Egypt.

Spring has arrived and with it comes the eight-day Jewish holiday of freedom. It’s time to clean out your chametz, open up a box of matzah and set up for your seder. So join our Passover festivities to learn all about this pinnacle holiday in the Jewish calendar.

We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to the first night of Passover on April 08th (begins at sundown)! So stop by again tomorrow.
