Passover for the year 2008 starts on Sunday, April 20th and ends the 7 day holiday on Saturday, April 26th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Saturday, April 19th. 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, April 27th.

Sunday, April 20th is the 110 day of the 2008 calendar year with -10 years, -9 months, -26 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2008.
