Passover for the year 2013 starts on Tuesday, March 26th and ends the 7 day holiday on Monday, April 1st. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Monday, March 25th. 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 Tuesday, April 2nd.

Tuesday, March 26th is the 84 day of the 2013 calendar year with -5 years, -11 months, -23 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2013.
