Pesach (Passover)
April 6-14

Pesach commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt and the birth of an independent and free people. It is also known as Chag HaMatzot (the feast of unleavened bread) in remembrance of the time when the children of Israel left Egypt so hurriedly there was no time for the dough to rise. We celebrate with a festive, ritual meal called a seder.
