Passover is a holiday that commemorates the liberation
of the ancient Israelites from 400 years of slavery
in Egypt (approximately 3000 years ago). Since that
time, the holiday has come to represent the universal
value of freedom. It is the holiday when family and
friends gather around the seder table to celebrate.
This year (2011), Pesach starts on the night of April 18th and runs through April 26th. Please click on
