The Jewish holiday of Passover (in Hebrew, Pesach) commemorates the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. The holiday originated in the Torah, where the word Pesach refers to the ancient Passover sacrifice (known as the Paschal Lamb); it is also said to refer to the idea that G-d “passed over” the houses of the Jews during the 10th plague on the Egyptians, the slaying of the first born. The holiday is ultimately a celebration of freedom, and the story of the exodus from Egypt is a powerful metaphor that is appreciated not only by Jews, but by people of other faiths as well.

With that in mind, below we share with you some Passover content, such as an art project, Passover recipes, an article about interesting Passovers customs from around the globe and music, all of which we hope will spark some joy into your holiday.
