First Day of Pesah

When:
Saturday, April 20, 2019 (all day)
Description:

(Until April 26 for Reform Jews; Until April 27 for Orthodox and Conservative Jews) Pesaḥ commemorates the departure of the Israelites from Egypt. It is the first of the three major festivals with both historical and agricultural significance (the other two are Shavuot and Sukkot). The evenings of the first and second days begin with Seders (festive meals and the telling of the Passover story). In Israel and among Reform Jews, Pesaḥ is celebrated for seven days: eve + the first day + the seventh (last) day are non-working. For Orthodox and Conservative Jews outside Israel, Pesaḥ is celebrated for eight days: eve + first and second days + seventh (second last) and eighth (last) days are non-working.
