Second Day of Pesaḥ

March 29, 2021

Second Day of Pesaḥ
(Until April 3 for Reform Jews; Until April 4 for Orthodox and Conservative Jews.)

Pesaḥ commemorates the departure of the Israelites from Egypt. It is the first of the three major festivals with both historical and agricultural significance (the other two are Shavuot and Sukkot).

The evenings of the first and second days begin with Seders (festive meals and the telling of the Passover story). In Israel and among Reform Jews, Pesaḥ is celebrated for seven days: eve + the first day + the seventh (last) day are non-working. For Orthodox and Conservative Jews outside Israel, Pesaḥ is celebrated for eight days: eve + first and second days + seventh (second last) and eighth (last) days are non-working.
