Passover is the commemoration of God's deliverance of the Jewish people from Egypt (see Exodus 12 and following for the biblical record). It comes in the spring of each year, in March or April. The reason for the variance is that Jewish people follow a lunar calendar while the Western world adopted a solar calendar. Passover always falls on Nisan 14 on the Jewish calendar.
Passover is a time for family celebration around the table — a time for special foods and traditions, similar to what Christians may do at Christmas or Easter. In a Jewish home this special meal is called a seder (Hebrew word meaning "order"; the Passover commemoration is called a seder because the meal and service follow a set order.)
Many Christians have benefited from attending a Passover seder* in their church. Believers who attend gain insight into the Lord's Supper, for communion was instituted by Jesus at a Passover meal. Seeing how the traditional elements point to Messiah's death, burial, and resurrection makes a powerful impact, then enjoy a meal together afterwards.
