Passover for the year 2014 starts on Tuesday, April 15th and ends the 7 day holiday on Monday, April 21st. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Monday, April 14th. 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 22nd.
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.
