Passover is an eight day Jewish holiday that celebrates the delivery of the Jews from bondage in Egypt. It is observed on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Nisan.

Passover is a moveable feast, a holiday which does not fall on the same date every year, but varies according to astronomical occurrences and is based on the Jewish liturgical calendar.
