Passover is one of the most widely observed holidays in the Jewish tradition. Commemorating the Biblical story of Exodus, Passover or “Pesach” in Hebrew is celebrated with a meal known as a Seder, featuring delicacies like matzo ball soup, brisket and potato kugel, and during which the Haggadah is recited in a set order. This year, Passover will take place from the evening of Wednesday, April 5, to the evening of Thursday, April 13.
