Happy Passover to all of our Jewish friends!

For those who don’t know, the eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 19th through the 27th of the Hebrew month of Nissan (April 19–27, 2019). It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. It is observed by avoiding leaven, and highlighted by the Seder meals that include four cups of wine, eating matzah and bitter herbs, and retelling the story of the Exodus.
