Passover is a holiday that is celebrated by Jewish people around the world. It is a time of celebration and commemoration, and it is one of the most important holidays in the Jewish calendar. Passover commemorates the story of the Israelites' escape from slavery in ancient Egypt, as described in the book of Exodus in the Hebrew Bible. According to the story, God sent ten plagues upon the Egyptians to convince Pharaoh to let the Israelites go, and the final plague was the death of the firstborn son of every family. To protect themselves, the Israelites placed the blood of a sacrificed lamb on their doorposts, and the Angel of Death passed over their homes, sparing their firstborn. Passover is observed for eight days, and it begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nisan. During this time, Jewish people abstain from eating leavened bread and other foods that are made from grains that have been allowed to ferment, and instead, they eat matzah, a type of unleavened bread. Passover is a time for Jewish people to come together with family and friends to celebrate the holiday and to remember the story of the Israelites' escape from slavery in Egypt. It is a time for reflection, gratitude, and the celebration of freedom.
