Passover, or Pesach, is the oldest of the Jewish holidays, it is associated with one of the most important events in Jewish history – with the Exodus from Egyptian slavery about 3,300 years ago, in 2448 according to the Jewish calendar.
Pesach celebrates a chain of events that caused Jews to become people. The Israelites came to Egypt as one family — the family of Jacob, consisting of seventy people, and they came out as a people numbering six hundred thousand. At first, the family of Jacob was cordially received in the land of Goshen (one of the provinces of Egypt), but when the Jews became “too many”, special measures were taken. Labor service was imposed on all inhabitants of the country, especially heavy on Jews. Jewish houses were tapped and watched, wives were separated from their husbands, newborn boys were killed.
Moshe (Moses) was the very boy who was destined to survive and save his people. Everyone knows this story. A surprising set of circumstances saved him from certain death from the hands of the Egyptians and led him to be brought up by Moshe in the palace of Pharaoh, but he always felt that he was part of his people.
For the murder of an Egyptian who had beaten a Jew, he was sentenced to death, fled, lived in Africa and the Middle East for many years. One day, while driving a flock of sheep across the Sinai Peninsula, I saw a burning but not burning bush (“burning bush”).
From the fire came the voice of the highest, commanding Moses to go to Egypt and bring the Jews out of slavery.
The name “Pesach” is interpreted by some researchers as a “transition”, an exodus from the land of Egypt, others are associated with the history of the holiday. Pharaoh did not want to let the Jews go, and God sent ten “executions” to Egypt : the conversion of Nile water into blood, the appearance of an infinite number of toads, irresistible hordes of lice, wild animals, the death of cattle, ulcers, the death of a crop from hail and locust, continuous three-day gloom and Finally, the death of the firstborn.
God killed the firstborn Egyptians but missed (“Pesach” in Hebrew) the house of the Jews. “Pe-sah” is also interpreted as “speaking lips,” and this, of course, corresponds to the fact that the main commandment of the Passover Festival is to speak and tell about the story of the Exodus.
Pesach – the holiday of spring – symbolizes the awakening of nature, the renewal of the world and the liberation of man. This is a celebration of gaining freedom and dignity. The Jews had to choose from the cattle to which they were assigned as shepherds (and who did not die, like the cattle of the Egyptians), young lambs, slaughter them, fry and eat “with bitter herbs and unleavened bread”. The lambs, which for the Egyptians were sacred animals, needed not only to be eaten, but to do it openly, in front of the Egyptians, and a few days before that it was necessary to mark the shoals of the doors of their houses in the light of the day with the blood of these sheep. And on the night when the first-born children died in every Egyptian family, death spared all Jewish homes that were marked this way.
There is a legend that before the Exodus they did not have time to ferment the dough, therefore they baked unleavened cakes. True, there is evidence that the shepherd’s holiday of unleavened bread was celebrated before Moses. But until now, matzoh — the unleavened tortillas that are supposed to be eaten on Pesach — is a reminder of the bread that the Jews ate, hurriedly leaving Egypt. The rush was not in vain – the Egyptian army led by Pharaoh was chasing on their heels. But on the seventh day of the Exodus, the Red Sea parted before the Jews, and then closed its waters over the head of the Egyptians.
The holiday lasts seven days from the 19th to the 27th day of the spring month of Nisan according to the Jewish calendar.
