Passover, known as Pesach in Hebrew, is a major Jewish spring festival, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. The ritual observance of this holiday centers around a special home service called the seder (meaning “order”) and a festive meal; the prohibition of chametz (leaven); and the eating of matzah (an unleavened bread). On the eve of the fifteenth day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, we read from a book called the Haggadah, meaning “telling,” which contains the order of prayers, rituals, readings, and songs for the Passover seder. The Passover seder is the only ritual meal in the Jewish calendar year for which such an order is prescribed, hence its name. Listen now: When Do We Eat Lotsa Matzah

During Passover, we are instructed in the Book of Exodus to eat Matzah, unleavened bread, and not to eat chametz, foods that are leavened, as a way of re-enacting our leaving Egypt. Before & during Passover this year [April 22 – April 29], we are asking that you refrain from bringing the following foods into the Temple Israel building: bread, rolls, crackers, flour tortillas, cookies, cakes, pasta, cereals, soy sauce, or food that has been breaded. Thank you and wishing you a joyous Festival of Matzah. Happy Passover! Chag Sameach!
