What is the significance of this Jewish holiday: Passover?
Passover, also called Passover and Pesach in Hebrew, is an essential element in Judaism. It is a Jewish pilgrimage holiday that takes place in the month of Nissan and commemorates the liberation of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt. This Jewish celebration marks the first and most important event in the history of the Jewish people. For seven (or eight) days, all leavening (hametz), whether in bread or other mixtures, is forbidden, and only unleavened bread, called matzot, may be eaten. The matzah symbolizes both the suffering of the Hebrews during their slavery and the haste with which they left Egypt during the exodus. Passover is also sometimes called the Festival of Unleavened Bread or Pessa.
One of the Jewish holidays that requires many preparations. Accessories dedicated entirely to Pesach are also necessary. Matzot covers for the Pesach Seder, boxes for matzot, Afikoman pouch… Models to be found in our special Pesach range.
