4-22 happy-passover

Sundown on Friday, April 22, marks the beginning of Passover (Peach) for people of the Jewish faith.

The holiday commemorates the freedom of the Jews from enslavement by the Egyptian pharaoh and is observed for eight days.

Seders — ritualized meals that rehearse the history of the exodus from Egypt with fables, stories, prayers, and songs — are held the first and/or second evening of the holiday week.

According to the biblical account, the Jews fled in great haste from the pharaoh. Thus, matzoh, or unleavened bread, is eaten as a reminder of the fact that they didn’t have time for the dough to rise.

Wishing all our friends celebrating Passover, peace, happiness and joy.
