The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated this year from sundown on Monday night, March 25, until after nightfall on Tuesday, April 2. Passover commemorates the exodus of the Jews from Egypt and will be celebrated with festive “Seder” dinners on March 25 and 26. Other holiday observances include restricting the consumption of leavened products such as bread and pasta, instead eating unleavened matzah.
