Passover - A Festival to the Lord

Jewish Legion soldiers celebrate Passover in Jerusalem, 1919 (Photo: wikicommons/Central Zionist Archives)

"This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD - a lasting ordinance." (Exodus 12:14)

In this photo taken in 1919, soldiers of the Jewish Legion - the force created to battle the Ottoman Empire during the First World War and a precursor to the IDF - commemorate God's deliverance of their forefathers during a Passover seder in Jerusalem.

As Passover begins this evening at sundown, we'll be back on Monday, April 25. If any critical developments related to Israel come up in the meantime we will post them on the Stand for Israel blog. We wish our Jewish friends a blessed Passover. Thank you for always standing for Israel!
