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 one of the links at left for more information.
