                                  Article name: Fourteen things to know for Passover 2014

                                  By: Rabbi Brad Hirschfield      found on FoxNews.com

 Summary

          Passover this year starts on April 14th. 

    It celebrates the end of ancient Israelites slavery

    in Egypt. The Jewish holiday is named Passover

    because,  the night before the Israelites ran from

   Egypt, God Passed Over (protected) them.

     Seder Meal is the main event of Passover.

     It is held on the night before the Israelites

    were freed. Wine is served four times over

  the meal. Each cup symbolize one good deed

the Israelites performed. Once they commited four

of these good deeds they were set free.Kids drink

 grape juice instead. All of these events lead up to

 one important lesson. Everyone has rough patches

in life. Remember, that with god you can always get

out of these troubles.
