Passover is celebrated on the 14th day of Nissan. Passover, or Pesach, commemorates God's liberation of the Jewish people from Egyptian slavery. In Israel, Passover is a seven-day holiday. The first and last days are full festivals. The intermediate days are called: "Chol HaMoed" In the Jewish diaspora, Passover is celebrated for 8 days. Jews observe the positive Torah commandment prohibiting owning or eating Chametz (leavened products) in memory of the unleavened bread that the Jews ate when leaving Egypt. Since they were commanded to leave hastily, they did not have time to let the dough rise properly, resulting in flat or unleavened bread. Since the prohibition on Passover is against eating or owning leavened food products, the weeks before the holiday are spent in concentrated and intense housecleaning. Each room in the house is thoroughly cleaned and rid of cookies, crackers, and all other leavened products. The kitchen receives special treatment since during Passover, completely separate dishes and glassware, which are reserved for only for Passover use are utilized. The Passover Seder: On the first night of Passover, or Seder night (first two nights outside Israel) the Passover Seder is held. The positive commandment is to recount story of the Exodus from Egypt, throughout the centuries, from the actual liberation from Egypt until this day, each generation transmitting witness of these events to their children, creating an unbroken chain of tradition of recognizing God's greatness and the miracles, which he performed for the Jews.
