The story of Passover
Apr. 11, 2017 | This morning, Form VI student Leah P. shared some of the customs and traditions associated with the eight-day Jewish celebration of Passover.
Pesach, known in English as Passover, is a sacred, religious holiday that commemorates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery, and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. Observation of the holiday began yesterday evening and starts off with a traditional Seder where families gather around the table to share a meal. A typical food staple is matzah, a flat, unleavened bread; however, Leah professed that it does not taste that good on its own and she much prefers it in the traditional matzah ball soup – or covered in chocolate!
