Description:

Passover: An eight-day celebration marking the deliverance of the Jews from slavery in Egypt; “Seder” ceremonies emphasize the concept of freedom. The first two days and the last two days are observed as holy days.

Reflection:This day shall become a memorial for you, and you shall observe it as a festival for the Lord…as an eternal decree shall you observe it….because on this very day I brought you out of the land of Egypt; you shall observe this day throughout your generations as an eternal decree. (Exodus 12:14-17.)
