Jewish faithful prepare for start of the Passover holiday

Posted:

Monday night marks the beginning of the Passover holiday for the Jewish faith.

The festival of freedom is most commonly celebrated from the homes of Jewish families.

The exodus from Egypt, marking Jewish freedom from slavery is the symbolism behind the celebration.

But the biggest tradition of all for recognizing the Passover, is the eating according to Rabbi Binah Wing.
