About Passover

Passover

More Jews celebrate the Passover holiday (also known as Pesach) in the United States than fast on Yom Kippur, making it the most widely celebrated Jewish holiday.  Passover is usually right around kids’ spring break time; the date varies from year to year because it’s based on the Jewish/lunar calendar.  The special traditions, meals featuring Passover recipes, and of course the Seder, all make Passover a unique and fun holiday to celebrate.   Some people joke that Passover, along with a few other Jewish holidays, can be summarized in one sentence:  “We were slaves, now we’re free, let’s eat!”
