Passover is one of the best-known Jewish holidays. It is one of the major festivals that are considered significant both agriculturally and historically. Agriculturally, it represents the beginning of the harvest season in Israel. Historically, it is related to the Exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery, as told in the Book of Exodus. Passover lasts for eight days.
The name “Passover” comes from the Hebrew word Pesach, which is based on the root “pass over.” This refers to the fact that during the last of the 10 plagues brought against Egypt, God “passed over” the houses of the Jews when he was slaying the firstborn of the Egyptians.
