Passover commemorates an event in the history of Judaism. When the Pharaoh of Egypt refused to let the Israelites go free, God sent an angel of death to kill all firstborn Egyptian sons. The Israelites put the blood of a lamb on their doors so that the death might “pass over” their homes and their sons would be spared. Shortly afterwards, the Pharaoh freed the slaves. The Israelites left in such a hurry, that their bread did not have time to rise. For this reason, only unleavened bread is eaten during Passover.
