 Warm Wishes for Our Jewish Friends During Passover

This year, Passover starts Saturday, April 7 and will continue for seven days until Friday, April 13.

Many people spend the Passover period with family or close friends. They make a special effort to ensure that older people, the poor, and those living alone can take part in the ceremonial meals known as Seder. They may do this by inviting people into their homes or giving them a gift basket. Passover gift baskets are filled with Seder plates and ceremonial foods and wine.

Find more information about the meaning of Passover as well as Passover traditions with this site for teens and kids.
