Passover, also known as Pesach, is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the exodus of the Israeli slaves from Egypt. This year, it begins at sundown on Friday, April 15, and ends the evening of Saturday, April 23. It's traditional to have a seder, or ceremonial dinner, the first two nights of the holiday with family and friends, and many people also eat matzoh during the week instead of leavened bread, along with other special dishes. Whether you're hosting a seder and stocking up, attending one and need a dish to bring, or just want to share in eating the classic holiday foods, we've got you covered. Check out our list of participating Valley eateries and stores below. Chag sameach!
