What exactly is Passover Where does Passover come from? What does it represent? The true history of Passover is shrouded in mystery and dispute. However, some facts have been discovered, and these facts help to shed some light on the fascinating history of Passover.
Passover is a celebration of the Passover holiday, which commemorates the story of Joseph and the Egyptian Pharaoh. Joseph was sold into slavery by the Egyptian Pharaoh and so had to leave Egypt. When he got away, he took with him a small group of his relatives and friends - his mother and children included. For the next three years, the people of Egypt did not know when the Pharaoh would liberate them, but they always waited for Passover, a celebration of their freedom.
During this waiting period, according to the Bible, the people of Israel were wandering in the desert. They were not knowing where they should go or what they should do. They began to make deals with the Egyptians to trade food and other goods so that they would have something to do during their long wait. Finally, when they finally reached Egypt, they were given the freedom to cross the river with their belongings. Some of them reached the other side and began to build a community of their own, the Israelite's.
What is Passover without its Seder? The Seder of Passover is the unleavened bread that the Israelite's made and ate during their freedom. This was one of the most important elements of the holiday. Without the seder, there can be no Passover holiday. All the ingredients for Passover eating, such as matzo and unleavened bread, are traditionally part of the Passover Seder. Of course, nowadays you don't have to make your own matzo, but you can still create your own delicious Passover Seder dish using traditional Passover foods.
One very simple Passover dish is Leber lech, which is unleavened bread baked in the shape of a loaf of bread. Begin by lining up a series of clean spits in a row down the middle of the oven. After lining up the spits, remove the drip tray from under the oven and place the hot baking soda inside the oven. When the soda begins to vaporize, it will seal the bottom of the loaf of bread, which makes it easier to slide out without getting splashed. Now you can begin to fill the loaf with the filling that is recommended for Passover, usually wheat flour, egg, or fruit.
The other staple of Passover foods is matzo. This is the unleavened bread dough that is eaten by the children and Passover holiday eaters alike. You can use Passover foods that are eaten during the holiday, or you can find Passover foods that will taste great if you make your own. Here are some Passover foods that are typically eaten during the holiday, but are also easy to prepare and bake at home.
Many Passover holiday foods like matzo are very easy to make at home. One easy recipe is Passover matzoh, which is simply a mix of almonds, sesame seeds, water, and salt. You will want to soak the almonds overnight, then chop them up into little pieces. The water and almonds soak up the water, while the salt gives the dough the texture of dough.
Finally, what is Passover celebrated in the first and last days of the holiday? The first day is known as Feasts of Sorrow and is when the entire feast upon the forbidden grain. The last day is called Shavuot and is the perfect day to get together with all of your family and friends and have a nice family dinner.
