Passover commemorates the story of Israelites' liberation by God from slavery in ancient Egypt. They were led by Moses into their Promised Land which is comprised in the Exodus chapter of The Bible. According to the holy scripture, God helped people of Israel escape from slavery in Egypt after ten plagues were inflicted upon them. The Pharaoh released them only after the tenth plague which killed the first-born of ancient Egyptians. Passover 2019: From Traditional Brisket to Matzo Ball Soup, Best Kosher Recipes to Celebrate Pesach.

To be saved from the tenth plague, Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their houses with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb. On seeing this sign, the spirit of the Lord would 'pass over' the first-born of that house.  The English name of the holiday thus comes from two words pass and over. Passover is hence also the celebration of freedom and the remembrance of God's work.

According to biblical chronology, this event would have taken place during 1300 BCE. One of the important traditions of the festival is the removal of all leavened food products from their houses before the festival begins. They do not eat bread and instead consume a type of flatbread called matzo.

When the Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise (leaven). In commemoration, for the duration of Passover, no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason Passover is called the feast of unleavened bread in the Torah.[10] Thus matzo (flat unleavened bread) is eaten during Passover and it is a tradition of the holiday.
