Passover

From sunset April 22 to sunset April 30, Jews the world over will gather for the festival of Passover commemorating Israel’s deliverance from bondage in Egypt, described in Exodus 12.
The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, “. . .each man is to take a lamb for his family. . .take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses. . .and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.”
Passover and the Exodus: celebrated by Jews as God’s redemption of Israel and their birth as a nation. And this evening, Jews will celebrate the beginning of Passover with a seder—a most beloved Jewish tradition: sharing the story of the Exodus in a feast of freedom!
Engage with the Bible—come together in its traditions and celebrations!
