In 2018, Passover and Easter converge, as they commonly do.
Passover marks the biblical story of Exodus, of the Jews and their leader, Moses, fleeing slavery in Egypt with the help of divine intervention.
Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospels of the New Testament.
While dates for the holidays change each year, the first night of Passover 2018 — March 30 — falls on Good Friday, which is an important part of Easter observance during the Holy Week preceding Easter Sunday, April 1.
Both holidays are a symbol of hope, and we wish all who celebrate them the happiest of times with family and loved ones.
