Passover 2023: Dates and Times for the Festival
Posted by AFRA KHAN
Passover is an important holiday in the Jewish faith, and it is celebrated every year in the spring. If you're wondering when Passover 2023 is, here's what you need to know:
The dates of Passover are determined by the Hebrew calendar, which is a lunar calendar. Passover 2023 will begin on the evening of March 30 and end on the evening of April 7. The first and last days of Passover are observed as full days of rest, and many Jews will take time off work and school to spend time with their families and participate in Passover-related activities.
During Passover, Jews remember and celebrate the story of the Israelites' liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt. This is done through special rituals, such as the Seder, which is a meal that includes specific foods and prayers. The Seder is typically held on the first two nights of Passover.
In addition to the Seder, many Jews also observe other traditions during Passover, such as abstaining from eating leavened bread (also known as chametz) and refraining from participating in certain types of work.
So mark your calendars for March 30 to April 7, 2023, and get ready to celebrate the joyous holiday of Passover!
