Celebrating Passover

Passover is an seven to eight day celebration observed each year by the Jewish religion. It commemorates their liberation by God from slavery in Egypt. It is one of the most important religious festivals in Judism.

Families celebrate Passover by having a seder (a ritual feast held on the first night - or first two nights - at the beginning of Passover). There are special foods, storytelling, songs, and customs. The Haggadah is a book that is read at the Passover table. The haggadah tells the story of the Exodus from Egypt and explains some of the customs and symbols of the holiday.

Song

Dahyenu (It Would Have Been Enough For Us)

Dayenu is an upbeat song that is part of the seder. It is about the many favors that God bestowed upon the Jewish people when He brought them out of Egypt. It tells of the different historical events experienced by the Israelites, from slavery in Egypt to the building of the Temple in Israel.
