What is Passover and when is it celebrated?
Passover is the Jewish holiday that celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt. During Passover, Jewish people refrain from eating leavened bread and instead eat matzah, a type of unleavened bread. Passover is one of the most important holidays in the Jewish religion. The holiday is celebrated during March - April every year. This year Passover starts on April 5th and lasts till April 13th. Passover also signifies the beginning of the spring season and the cleaning that comes with it. Passover dishes usually include fresh-in-season fruit, vegetables and many delicious dishes.

13. Charoset cake
In case you are wondering, Charoset is a sweet, fruit and nut-based paste that is traditionally eaten during the Jewish Passover Seder.
