Passover for the year 2005 starts on Sunday, April 24th and ends the 7 day holiday on Saturday, April 30th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Saturday, April 23rd. For Reform and Reconstructionist Jews who follow the Biblical text they celebrate the holiday over 7 days, however, Orthodox, Hasidic, and other Jews in the Diaspora will celebrate the holiday as 8 days ending on Sunday, May 1st.

Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nison according to the Hebrew calendar, which is a full moon. Passover starts in either March or April for the Gregorian calendar. Passover lasts generally about 7 to 8 days and commemorates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt.
