Passover for the year 2021 starts on Sunday, March 28th and ends the 7 day holiday on Saturday, April 3rd. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Saturday, March 27th. 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 Sunday, April 4th.

Sunday, March 28th is the 86 day of the 2021 calendar year with 2 years, 8 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2021.
