Introduction to Pesach

Passover, along with Sukkot and Shavuot, is one of the Shalosh Regalim (שלוש רגלים), or Three Pilgrimage Festivals, major holidays during which people in ancient times gathered in Jerusalem with their agricultural offerings.

There are several mitzvot unique to Passover, which are evident in the customs and rituals of the holiday to this day: matzah; maror; chametz; biur chametz (removal of leaven from the home); and Haggadah. The name, Passover” comes from the miracle in which God “passed over” the houses of the Israelites during the tenth plague.
