Variable. Passover is the most commonly celebrated holiday among Jews. It lasts for seven days. The primary observances of the holiday are related to the Exodus from Egypt after generations of slavery. This story is told in Exodus, chapters 1-15; many of the Passover observances are instituted in chapters 12-15. On the first two nights of Passover, the Seder meal is eaten. Some Unitarian Universalist congregations will have a Passover Seder on one of those days, or a date close to then. Many of the customs and traditions of the Seder are observed. The Seder meal sometimes takes place in a church member’s home, as opposed to the church building itself.
