What is Passover, When is Passover

The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated each year in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan, so the dates on an American calendar vary from year to year and we often find ourselves asking “when does Passover start?” or “when is the first Seder in 2015?”  We are happy to provide you with this information about Passover 2015 dates.

What is Passover?

Passover is a commemoration of the Jewish liberation by God from slavery in Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible especially in the Book of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.
