What are you celebrating?

Passover, the first of the three pilgrimages, lasts seven days, from the 15th of Nisan to the 21st of Nisan, according to the Hebrew calendar.

The first and last day of Passover are good days - while the days in between are called Chul HaMoed.

The most well-known and central holiday mitzvah is the prohibition of eating leaven.

This prohibition stems from the fact that during the exodus from Egypt, which was done in haste and after God brought down the ten plagues on the Egyptians, the Israelites did not have enough time to prepare a side for the journey.

The dough they made did not rise enough and instead of bread, they had to make do with matzoh.

The Jews usually burn or sell their sour cream and defile the dishes, in order to be ready for Passover.

The holiday of Passover begins with the "Night of the Seder", where the Haggadah, which tells about the exodus from Egypt, is read.

Seder night is characterized by many passages from the Haggadah that have been turned into songs, which are sung together at the traditional family meal on the eve of the holiday, during which they also hide and look for the afikoman, one of the three unleavened bread on the table.

On Seder night it is said that "everyone who tells a lot about the Exodus from Egypt, it is fine" and that if a person did not tell about the Exodus from Egypt on the eve of Passover, he did not fulfill his duty.

During the Seder night, four glasses of wine are also drunk.

Besides the name "Pesach", which was given to the holiday since God passed over the houses of the Israelites and inflicted the ten plagues only on the Egyptians, other names for the holiday are "The Feast of Unleavened Bread", "The Holiday of Freedom" (due to the release of the Israelites from slavery to freedom) and "The Spring Festival" , indicating the arrival of the spring season.

Order table

Until when is it permissible to eat chametz on Passover 2023?

Jerusalem: 9:58, Tel Aviv: 9:59, Haifa: 9:58, Beer Sheva: 10:00.

How do you arrange the holiday plate?


- Cabbage is actually a kind of appetizer at the Seder night meal.

The custom is intended to change the accepted order of things of opening the meal with the blessing of "the one who brings forth bread from the land" and eating bread, as well as causing the children to ask after the blessing of "the creator of the fruit of the earth" and eating the leek, "What has changed?"

This question leads to the story of the Exodus from Egypt and the reading of the Haggadah.

The leek can actually be any vegetable, but in most denominations it is customary to eat a potato, usually dipped in salt water, and there are those who eat celery instead.


- The basis of the Passover plate is three unleavened bread.

Two matzahs ​​for the blessing of the 'issuer' instead of the two applicable to which they bless every Shabbat and holiday, and a third middle matzah between the two - "Yachz" - which is crossed during the seder and half of it will be used for the afikomen.

Place 3 matzos - preferably reserved matzos - on top of each other and cover with a napkin or plate.

It is recommended to also cut between the matzahs ​​with a cloth or paper napkin.


- the moror on the Passover plate is eaten as a reminder of the bitterness and hardship our ancestors went through in Egypt.

You can put washed leaves of lettuce or chicory leaves.


- repatriation is in memory of the hard life and slavery in Egypt.

In some denominations it was customary to put horseradish instead of lettuce leaves, but today in all Passover plates there is a designated place for the horseradish root.

The return is peeled and grated in a food processor or food processor.

It is recommended to store the grated beetroot in a hermetically sealed jar in the refrigerator to maintain its freshness.


- The pile is similar in color and texture to the mortar used for construction and symbolizes the hard work of the Israelites in Egypt.

In many denominations, the bunch is wrapped in a lettuce leaf (bitter) as is the custom of the old Hillel and eaten together.

There are those who eat it with grated horseradish which also symbolizes the bitter.

The harosat spread usually consists of a combination of fruits such as apples or dates with wine and sometimes also nuts.

The recipe for the haroshat varies from tribe to tribe and family to family.


- The arm symbolizes the Passover sacrifice, which was sacrificed on Passover Eve during the time of the Temple, and eaten on Seder night and also represents the phrase "a strong hand and a bent arm".

The arm is not usually eaten.

In the Ashkenazi tradition, it is customary to place one of the parts of the chicken, such as a wing or throat, on the seder plate after roasting over an open fire to simulate that sacrifice, with the Sephardi, on the other hand, it is customary to use part of the leg of the lamb or cow.

If you are not careful and precise in the mitzvot, you can also put part of the cooked chicken in the chicken soup that will be served to the table later in the meal.


- The egg symbolizes the celebratory sacrifice, which they would sacrifice every holiday in the temple.

Some point out that this is a mourning custom and eating it is a reminder of the destruction of the first and second temples.

There is no obligation to eat the egg, but it is customary to prepare hard-boiled eggs, dip them in salt water and eat them when you start eating the holiday meal, after eating the matzah and the moror.
