"Passover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being." ~ Rabbi Morris Joseph
Passover or Pesach (from Hebrew פֶּסַח), is an important, biblically derived Jewish holiday. Jews celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation by God from slavery in ancient Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible, especially in the Book of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt.
Passover is a spring festival which during the existence of the Temple in Jerusalem was connected to the offering of the "first-fruits of the barley", barley being the first grain to ripen and to be harvested in the Land of Israel.

The best-known quote from the Pesach Haggadah is, "why is this night different from all other nights?" This line is usually recited by the youngest person at the table. It is meant to express the child's confusion at the difference between a typical every-day or holiday meal and the unusual features of the Passover Seder meal.
