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 us for our Did You Know? countdown to Passover, which begins at sundown on Monday March 29, 2010.
