Passover for the year 2019 starts on Saturday, April 20th and ends the 7 day holiday on Friday, April 26th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Friday, 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 Saturday, April 27th.

Passover begins typically in March or April of the Gregorian calendar. It is on the 15th day of the month of Nison which is on the night of a full moon. It lasts generally for 7 to 8 days.

Saturday, April 20th is day number 110 of the 2019 calendar year with -1 month, -28 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2019.
