Passover, known in Hebrew as Pesach, is a popular family holiday, primarily observed in the home. It is a week-long spring festival commemorating our redemption from slavery. Passover begins with a ritualized meal called a seder (order) that refers to the order of the prayers that are recited and to the symbolic foods that are eaten prior to a meal. The prayers are written in a special book called a Haggadah. The purpose of the seder is to tell the story of the liberation of the Israelites from the Egyptian slavery.
