The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. It is observed by the Seder meals that include four cups of wine, eating matza and bitter herbs, and retelling the story of the Exodus. During Passover, we avoid chametz (leavened foods like bread, pasta) and even take care not to own any chametz. To do this, we temporarily sell the chametz in our home. This year Passover is celebrated from March 27 at sundown -April 4, 2021.
