The First Passover

“The LORD’s Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. On the fifteenth day of that month the LORD’s Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast.” (Leviticus 23:5-6)

As the Jewish people prepare to observe the important biblical festival that celebrates God’s deliverance of His people in the Exodus story, Yael comes to us with this Passover video. In it, she shows us how to bake matzah. Join her in the Holy Land as she makes this unleavened bread that reminds Jews of God’s providence and protection as they prepared to escape slavery in Egypt. And follow Yael on Facebook all year round to learn more about Christians’ Jewish roots.
