What is Passover?

Passover marks the liberation of the Children of Israel, who were slaves in ancient Egypt, and recounts the story of their exodus to the Promised Land. Key things to remember: Moses, Ten Plagues, matzo, the parting of the Red Sea.

When is Passover?

Passover 2016 begins at sundown on April 22—the night of the first Seder—and lasts eight days, ending at sundown on April 30.
