Passover 2013

March 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

The week-long celebration of Passover (March 25 to April 2) commemorates one of the most significant events in the Hebrew Bible — the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt. According to the Bible, the Jews were kept as slaves in Egypt until Moses came to free them from slavery with the grace from God. When the Pharaoh refused to let the Jews go, God unleashed the Ten Plagues, which were basically a series of natural disasters — locusts, hail, thunder, darkness, diseases, ect…..I think you know the rest of the story.

Passover also has a connection to the Christian Bible, as The Last Supper was believed to happen either immediately before or during Passover. In honor of this occasion, I have prepared these Passover trivia questions for my Jewish friends to enjoy. Happy holiday!
