Passover for the year 2017 starts on Tuesday, April 11th and ends the 7 day holiday on Monday, April 17th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Monday, April 10th. 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 18th.

Tuesday, April 11th is the 100 day of the 2017 calendar year with -1 year, -10 months, -8 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2017.
