Passover (Pesach) is a major Jewish spring festival which commemorates the Exodus from Egypt over 3,000 years ago.
It s customary to observe Passover with a special service called a seder (order) and a festive meal. Reform Jews observe Passover for seven days. During that time we refrain from eating any leaven (chametz); and instead eat matzah (an unleavened bread).
At the Passover Seder, we read from a book called a hagaddah (telling) which contain the prayers, rituals, readings and songs for the Passover seder. Every seder has seder plate with contains bitter herbs, charoset (apple and cinnamon dish), roasted egg, shank bone and parsley. The seder always concludes with the saying, “Next Year in Jerusalem!”
