Passover for the year 2018 starts on Saturday, March 31st and ends the 7 day holiday on Friday, April 6th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Friday, March 30th. 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 Saturday, April 7th.

Saturday, March 31st is the 89 day of the 2018 calendar year with -11 months, -20 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2018.
