This major Jewish Spring festival commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egypt. It traditionally lasts seven to eight days. Here is a look at some of the best Passover sayings to reflect on during your celebration.
“And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the Passover.”
“And the Jews’ Passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves.”
“As for the bitter herbs…. To see everyone with tears coursing down their faces, laughing and gasping at the same time, is fun and also makes the point — bitter herbs must be really bitter to experience the suffering.”
“Freedom is within our grasp, and Pesach reminds us that we need to reach.”
“I do not want followers who are righteous, rather I want followers who are too busy doing good that they won’t have time to do bad.”
“In Jewish history there are no coincidences.”
“Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the Passover to purify themselves.”
“Passover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being.”
“Passover is one of my favorite times of the year. This is when the whole community and family gets together to remember who we are and why we are here.”
“Passover is our tradition, and I like to keep up with that. Our ancestors couldn’t eat bread, and it’s nice for us to celebrate that every year by going through their struggles.”
“The Exodus from Egypt occurs in every human being, in every era, in every year, and in every day.”
“The point of cleaning for Pesach is to remember that we are leaving Egypt, leaving the things that constrict us spiritually.”
“What is national freedom if not a people’s inner freedom to cultivate its abilities along the beaten path of its history?”
“When Moses said to the people, ‘Commemorate this day, the day you came out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, because the Lord brought you out of it with a mighty hand. Eat nothing containing yeast.”
Here is a brief overview of the Jewish Holiday of Passover and its origin in the Christian ritual of communion.
