Hi Everyone!

Passover is a Jewish holiday, of Biblical origin, marking the birth of the Jews as a people and their emergence as a unique nation in history, devoted to G-d's will. It celebrates the liberation of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt over 3000 years ago, under the leadership of Moses.

This year, Passover begins on Friday night, April 22, 2016.

In which Hebrew month is Passover celebrated ?
Why do we eat matzah during Passover ?
