Pesach or Pesah as it is called in Hebrew, has become one of the most well known Jewish holidays. It is a commonly held belief that the name “Passover” is taken from the story of the Israelites escape from Egypt, which can be found in the Bible in the Book of Exodus. The story tells how God, through Moses, sends ten plagues to the Egyptian people in order to make the Pharaoh change his mind and release the Israelites from slavery. Now at that time, even though the Israelites lived among the Egyptians, they were not affected by the plagues. On the tenth and worst plague where God sends and angel to kill all first born in the land, Moses instructs the Israelites to mark the doorposts of their homes with lamb’s blood. When the angel saw the mark, he "passed over" the house and spared the first bornliving in it this is where the name Passover came from.
