Free Printable Passover Activities, Crafts, Games

Passover or Pesach, is the highest celebration in the Jewish Hebrew calendar. Passover is an eight day holiday, beginning with two days of no work, four days of limited work and ending with two days of no work. The passover celebration includes several Seder meals, with roast lamb, bitter herbs and matzo bread. Passover commemorates the passing over of the angel of death during the ten plagues of Egypt. God punished the Egyptians for the enslavement of the Hebrews. First born male infants were to die unless the blood of a lamb was put on the lintels and door posts. Passover, or Pesach, is part of Christian calendar as well; it was at their passover meal that Jesus instituted the Holy Eucharist or communion. Read more at Free Printable Passover Activities
