Celebrate Passover with music from the Recorded Sound Archives

By , April 13, 2016 4:36 pm

Passover marks the liberation of the Israelites from 400 years of slavery in ancient Egypt. Moses tried to convince Pharaoh to let the Israelites go free with words and demonstrations of God’s AWESOME power.

When Pharaoh wouldn’t concede, Moses proceeded to bring about the 10 plagues.

You can read more about the plagues, here.

The 10th plague, the death of every Egyptian first born including Pharaoh’s young son, was too much for Pharaoh and he finally let them go. God instructed the Israelites to mark their doorposts with the blood of a slaughtered lamb so that he would know to pass over those homes. This is where the name Passover comes from (Exodus 12:11-13). There are actually three other names for this holiday: Holiday of Matzot, Holiday of Freedom, and Holiday of Spring.  But on this holiday, we celebrate the gift of freedom, remember Jewish history through special Seder foods and teach the lessons of the Haggadah (The Telling) to the next generation.
