Passover is a holiday in the Jewish religion, and it was started in order to celebrate the date when the Jewish people were liberated from slavery and left Egypt when they were led out by Moses. There are many inspiring Passover quotes that show the importance of this holiday. During Passover those who are Jewish do not eat any bread that has been leavened. The Passover holiday is so named because the Pharaoh of Egypt refused to free the Hebrew slaves so god called down 10 plagues on the land. The last plague was the death of the first born son, but the Hebrews sacrificed a lamb and used the blood to mark a symbol on their door. The Angel of Death passed over these homes, the Hebrew sons were spared, and the Pharaoh freed the slaves and let them leave.
