THE SPRING HOLIDAYS
The four Biblical Jewish spring festivals celebrate freedom of the season of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The celebrations begin with Passover as community comes together during this day and remembers the Exodus story. The seven days after Passover are called Unleavened Bread. During this time, we refrain from eating anything with leavening in it. We step into new freedom and power in this season.
Passover is a festival commemorating the liberation of the Israelites from the land of Egypt. We celebrate it with a Seder Dinner and liturgy, traditionally called a Haggadah. Find out more here.
During this weeklong festival, we refrain from eating leaven. We remember the journey the Israelites made in the wilderness. Click here for more about Unleavened Bread.
