In Hebrew it is known as Pesach (which means "to pass over"), because G-d passed over the Jewish homes when killing the Egyptian firstborn on the very first Passover eve. It's an opportunity for our community as well- to think about how Judaism is a part of your life and how our vision of Jewish community to which we aspire can be reached. This collective liberation and effort came about during the Exodus as a result of the effort of each Jew, who first liberated himself from his own spiritual exile.

Also featured on the plate are bitter herbs which are dipped in a special sweet paste called Charoset - made from apples, wine and nuts - and eaten.

Millions of Jewish people across the world will be celebrating the festival of Passover from this Friday.

During the Seder, people drink four cups of wine or grape juice, symbolizing the promises that God made to the Israelites, including deliverance from bondage. Unless a food is labeled or packaged specifically "Kosher for Passover", it can not be assumed to be edible. This represents slavery, because the slave never has a complete loaf of bread to eat, Moss said.

For Christians, Good Friday and Easter Sunday mark the period when Christ was crucified, but then arose from the dead, thereby confirming that he was the Son of God. Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, who is often described as the Lamb of God. "Passover is about slavery, sacrifice and redemption, and Easter is about sacrifice, death and rebirth", Cytron said.

In an article published in the January 1994 edition of the Ensign, John P. Pratt, an astronomer and member of the Church, further commented on the significance of Passover to the Christian world.

The ritual fest is on the 15th day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar meaning it usually falls in late March or early April. My Nana Lillian would buy special Passover dishwashing detergent, and would put masking tape across her dishwasher so as not to mix the two types of dishes.

The Seder ends with the exhortation, "Next year in Jerusalem!"

"In America, we look to the light of God to guide our steps, we trust in the power of the Almighty for wisdom and strength, and we praise our Heavenly Father for the blessings of freedom and the gift of eternal life", he said. "I'm not there personally, but I feel like I've been welcomed to join".
