“Between Passover and Easter” – Tracking the Jewish and Christian traditions of Passover and Easter

Let’s set forth on a tour full of festivities, tracing the traditions of Jewish Passover and Christian Easter

The month of Nissan, which brings the spring, is a cause for celebration: the Jewish calendar regards it as “first among the months” and it contains the holiest week of the Christian calendar.

 

During this month of spring, Jews celebrate the exodus from Egypt, from slavery to freedom, while Christians celebrate the Messiah Jesus rising from the dead.

 

Let us join the many pilgrims arriving from all over the world during these special days, as we explore commonalities and differences between these two religions.

 

The tour route includes Mount Zion, the Jewish Quarter, and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
