Jewish Passover or the Pesach is one of the most popular Jewish holidays. The observance of the Jewish Passover is related to the Exodus of Hebrew slaves from Egypt, freeing themselves from the reins of slavery. Pesach in Hebrew means "passing over" implying that God passed over the houses of people who observed the Passover, while punishing the entire Egypt with the tenth plague.

The holiday is celebrated for eight days and Seder is observed on its first two nights. The Fast of the Firstborn is observed on the day prior to the Pesach. It is a fast for all first born males to honour the fact that first-borns of Israelites were saved from the plague of Egypt. Passover in 2007 will commence just after sundown on Monday, April 2nd, 2007. For Jews who commemorate the Passover for eight days, the festival will conclude at sundown on Tuesday, April 10th, 2007.
