What is Pesach?
Jews are required to have a family meal on the first night of Passover that reminds them of the holiday. This ritual is called the Seder or "order" in Hebrew. The meal mostly consists of symbolic food that reminds them of the past. It is traditional for the youngest child to ask questions about Passover which the leader/father answers.
Passover always starts on the 15th day of the Jewish month, Nissan. The next Passover of 2015 begins in the evening of Friday, April 3 and ends in the evening of Saturday, April 11.
