The Festival of Spring
Passover is also known by the name "the festival of spring". In springtime, trees bloom and blossom, farmers start to harvest their crops, and nature as a whole seems to be reborn. There is no better season to celebrate Passover, symbolizing the birth of our nation, and its newfound freedom. Happy Passover!
