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. The Passover celebration lasts for seven or eight days, depending on where you live.
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. An extra cup is on the table and the door is left open for Elijah. Jews believe that the prophet Elijah will reappear to announce the coming of the Messiah.
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.
