Passover is a time of great significance and remembrance for those of the Jewish faith; and while this can be a solemn and reflective holiday, it also is a time of food, high spirits, and of course great music. The ultimate Passover playlist should include songs that are both meaningful and melodic; that are light and fun without being frivolous and disrespectful. They could include:

Ma Nishtana (The Four Questions) by Chayim B. Alevsky
Eliyahu Hanavi (Elijah the Prophet) by Chayim B. Alevsky
New Covenant by Shira
Baruch Hamakom • A Passover Song by Sam Glaser
Watch (Passover Song) by Y-Love and Yuri Lane
At The Seder- A Passover Song by Judy Tellerman
In addition to a full roster of memorable and enjoyable Passover songs, no Passover celebration would be complete a multitude of beautiful and theme-related party supplies. As food is an essential component of any Passover celebration, food products actually can double as party supplies at a Passover party. A host could present anything from a cake pan and decorated cookies in the shape of the Star of David, oversized paper mache Matzah Balls to use as centerpieces and ceiling ornaments, as well as decorative Matzah spreaders (to help guests chow down on the real deal), tableware (such as plates, dishes, napkins, cups and table covers and runners) decorated with vivid illustrations of dreidels and Menorahs. A box can serve a dual purpose by first being able to hold supplies, but also be decorated on the outside for decor use. Don't be hesitant about asking parents to help out at a celebration for children. With a little imagination and white poster board, crayons, coloring pencils, tape, staples and printed photo images that can be cut, kids can create their own paper hats.

Passover handmade party supplies such as banners, handmade flags and balloon bouquets will add a lot to a Passover celebration. The Passover is a special time in the life of families and an assortment of Passover party supplies such as paper plates, napkins and cups will make cleaning up after this party much easier. “The Passover,” is an important time and families prepare for a Passover party for many months. For the most part, Passover handmade party goods and homemade party supplies are fun to make and with the addition of party goods such as balloons, personalized banners and gift baskets the party will be complete.

A Passover is recognized as a time for celebration and can compare to other special occasions. Making homemade personalized banners commemorating the Passover can be a nice touch to the Passover event. Having a party or celebration with homemade party goods such as glow sticks, candles and house flags will give family and friends a chance to be part of the Passover celebration. Homemade party goods and handmade party supplies such as party streamers, colorful balloon bouquets and handmade place cards save a great deal of money and add a special touch to this occasion.


For those who celebrate this day, choosing to have a Passover holiday cake could be a family tradition. Starting first with the basics of the cake and working from there. Here is one possible suggestion for making a cake to celebrate this day, a damp apple and almond cake. Now to make this cake here is a list of items to include with the party supplies; 3 tart apples, lemon juice, sugar, Canola oil, eggs, ground almonds, superfine sugar and slivered or sliced almonds to round the list. Well then what to do with these ingredients now. On to the direction then, start with peel and roughly chop the apples. In a saucepan add lemon juice, sugar and the apples, using medium bring it to a boil. Reduce heat and cover, add a little water if to dry and allow it to cook for 10 minutes and remove to cool. Need to get the oven warmed up to 350 degrees and grease a 10 inch pan then line the bottom with parchment paper. Using the remaining ingredients place in a food processor blend until combined. This will be poured into the pan for baking, about 45 minutes.

The Passover is meant to celebrate the freedom of the Jewish people from the Egyptians nearly 3,300 years ago. Explained in the book of Exodus, God directed Moses and Hebrews to offer and consume roasted lamb to symbolize the Passover sacrifice. They were then instructed to spread the blood of the lamb on the doorposts and lintel to serve as a sign to pass over the home thus protecting them from the last plague - death of the first born son.

The offering of lambs in ritual today has mainly been substituted with the roasting of eggs and shankbone. This celebration has since been recognized as a feast day named Passover Seder. Declaring the importance of the Passover procedure, the Passover Haggadah gives a narration in Hebrew of the story as well as prayers and many other resources useful in celebrating the holiday. The celebration lasts seven or eight days and begins at sundown on the 15th day of Nissan in the Hebrew calendar. Why the difference in days of celebration? It has to do with the conversion of calendar days. The Passover in Israel is celebrated for seven days based on scriptures but the Jewish calendar is a function of the lunar cycle and scholars added the extra day to make room for the differentiation in the moons location in the sky. It should also be noted that in some years, this holiday falls close to Easter.

The importance of Passover today has a tiered level of significance. First, it is a historical and biblical event signifying the escape from Egyptian slavery of the book Exodus. Secondly, this celebration acts as an agricultural marker in that the celebration of spring brings new beginnings in a growing season. Lastly, the religious significance gives God the recognition of as being the redeemer of the Hebrew peoples. One could also argue that another important prospect of the Passover in Kabbalistic traditions notes that the play out of God's commandments in observation of the Passover fulfills the redemption process and highlights his mercy as justice.

The history of Passover, one of the best known Jewish holidays, dates back over 3,000 years. It marks a time when Jacob, a Hebrew, arrived with his twelve sons in Egypt.

They were struck with famine in this region and Jacob requested that he and his sons be able to live in peace in the Land of Goshen, and they were granted this by a kind pharaoh. As the years passed, Jacob and his sons died, but their families remained in Goshen. After a while, the Hebrews seemed to pose a threat to the Egyptian royal families. At least, that is how the Egyptians saw it. This resulted in the whole Hebrew population being enslaved and to be the builders of new cities for food supplies to the Eqyptians. The Hebrew population, however, kept growing, so the pharaoh ordered that all newly born Hebrew males be drowned in the Nile.

One of these Hebrew baby boys was set to sail by his Hebrew mother in a tiny basket. A princess, one of the pharaoh’s daughters found the child floating on the river, and she ordered Jochebed, a Hebrew woman, to watch after the baby. Jochebed was actually the baby’s mother all along, and this was her plan to save her child.

A few years later, the princess adopted the child and named him Moses. Moses was brought up by the Egyptian royal family, and until he was older, they did not know of his Hebrew background. For fear that his secret would be discovered, he left the kingdom.

He married a shepherd woman, had a child, and lived as a shepherd for forty years, until one day when God gave him supernatural powers, which he would have to prove to the pharaoh Ramses. Ramses did not believe any of it, including the Ten Commandments that were given to Moses by God. A plague struck and killed Ramses’ only son.

The Passover festival commemorates those days when the Jews were spared of the plague and other evils by God. The name Passover comes from the event of the “passing over” of the Jewish homes when the first born sons were being slain.
