Passover

book-cover

Passover this year is from April 10 – April 18, 2017.

During Passover Jewish people remember how their ancestors left slavery behind them when they were led out of Egypt by Moses. On the night before Passover starts, there is a special meal called a Seder. Families read the story of how the Israelites fled from Egypt from a book called the Haggadah.

The books and websites on this page can be enjoyed by families celebrating Passover themselves or by families who would like to learn about the Passover traditions of their friends and neighbors.
