A few days break- Passover

Dear friends,

This week is the Jewish festival of Passover, where we remember the Jewish people being freed from slavery in Ancient Egypt (as told in the Torah and Bible). We commemorate this and other persecutions that have enslaved us around the world and enslave others. The first two days and end last days are holy days, meaning I won't be online to blog.

Passover is a lovely festival, we eat delicious food and gather with family and friends. We change our diet for the whole week of Passover and do not eat anything that has 'risen' with wheat/ been leavened, as the Israelites did not have time for their bread to rise as they hurredly left Egypt. We commemorate this by eating differently for the week. For anyone interested, we eat a cracker called matza... and various other dishes, mainly fish, meat, eggs (but sadly no bread or pasta).

If you would like to know more, ask away below and I will tell you.

Back in a few days!

Lots of Love
