Easter may be over, but Passover continues until April 14. This eight-day holiday is a celebration of the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt, according to During Passover, those of the Jewish faith commemorate the event by performing certain rituals including avoiding any foods or drinks that contain leavened grains.

During the first two and last two nights of the holiday, families host Seders - a dinner in which people take part in specific rituals while sharing a meal. The event requires people of faith to eat matzah, which is flat, unleavened bread. People must also eat bitter herbs, to commemorate the bitter end of slavery, and drink four cups of wine or grape juice to represent a royal drink and newfound freedom. The dinner concludes with a family member reciting the Haggadah, which is the liturgy that details the story of the Exodus from Egypt.
