When is Passover (Pesach)?

While the Jews were enslaved by the Egyptians, Egypt suffered 10 plagues from G-d. The final plague was the killing of all of Egypt's first born children. However, the Jews were instructed to mark their doors with spring lamb blood. The Holy Spirit would see this mark and "pass over" this house, sparing the Jewish first-born. After this, Pharaoh released the Jews from slavery.

Passover celebrates the sparing of their first born, and their freedom from slavery by Egypt. Unleavened bread is eaten to remember that the Jews left Egypt so quickly that they did not have time let their bread rise.
