Passover (Hebrew: פֶּסַח Pesah) commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nissan in the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven (7) or eight (8) days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays. source http://www.hebcal.com/
