At Passover (Pesach), Jew tells the story of the Exodus from Egypt of the Israel slaves from the Pharaoh. God instructs Moses to go to Pharaoh and tell him "Let my people go." When the Pharaoh refuses, 10 plagues are brought upon the Egyptians. During the last plaque, the Slaying of the Firstborn, the Israelite children were "passed over." After these plagues, Pharaoh agreed and the Israelites were set free.
NTHC's Seder includes the reading of the Haggadah including the Four Questions, searching for the Afikoman, and all the typical Passover foods including Matzah (unleavened bread), Charoset (symbolizing mortar used by the Jew in building during their slavery) and Maror (horseradish).
