Easter always falls on the Sunday of Passover, by definition.
Easter is observed around the same time as Passover.
Easter is a Christian festival. Jews therefore do not celebrate Easter. However, they do celebrate the Passover, which falls about the same time as Easter.
The Passover is still the Passover, or Pesach, to the Jews. In the Christian calendar, Good Friday which is observed two days before Easter Sunday, falls at the same time as the Jewish Passover.

Easter occurs about the same time as Passover. In the original Passover the Jews put lamb's blood on their doors, so the Angel of Death would pass them by. In the modern day Passover service, a lamb's bone is at the table to remember the original Passover. Lamb is served at Easter, because of it's nearness to Passover. Ham is also served because, most Christians do not observe Kosher laws, (which prohibit the eating of… Read More
Passover was a day of remembrance that a lamb was slain for Israel and on the same day a lamb not of the world but lamb of God was put to death for the sins of the World. Without passover there is no victory of leaving Egypt.Without passover there is no Easter joy because without being put to death Jesus could not have risen from the dead as was prophesied for Him by the prophets… Read More
It's called Pâques, which incidentally is the same name used for the Jewish holiday of Passover.
Easter Sunday on the U.S. calendar correlates to the Passover celebration on the Jewish Calendar. The Jewish year was controlled by solar/lunar cycles. That is why our Easter does not fall on the same date each year. Jesus was crucified on the Jewish Passover and so Easter Sunday (three days later) is important to Christians because Jesus resurrected on Sunday morning.
Easter falls on the last Sunday of the month of March (most of the time). This is because it is the first Sunday after the Vernal Equinox. This was done to prevent Easter and Passover falling on the same day.
In 2010, Easter Sunday was the 6th day of Passover. Those often seem to occur close to one another. Wonder why that is.
The dates of Passover (or Pesach, as we Jews call it) doesn't need to be calculated like the dates of Easter because it always begins on the same day on the Hebrew calendar - 14 Nisan.
You don't. Jesus could not of died on Good Friday (Dagon's sacred day!) and risen on Easter Sunday. Jesus died AT THE EXACT SAME TIME AS THE PASSOVER LAMB. The last supper was not the Passover, because if it was, He couldn't be the Passover lamb. Jesus died on Wednesday evening arose Shabbat morning. This is the only way you can get three days and nights. For more info about Easter and Xmas, visit aroodawakening!international.
Although some Christians can choose to reference Passover, they do not celebrate the actual Jewish holiday of Passover. The main reason being that the beliefs of Christianity are diametrically opposed to the meaning behind Passover. Christians celebrate the holiday of Easter which occurs at the same time of year as Passover (although the two holidays are completely unrelated).
Catholic churches use two criteria - Easter cannot be before March 21 & must fall on the first Sunday after the vernal equinox (ie first full moon after March 21). The Orthodox Easter is determined in the Julian Calendar (used by the Orthodox Church), and also uses the full moon criteria. However, Orthodox Easter is never before or on the Jewish Feast of Passover as Jesus and the disciples observed Passover (Pasech) at the Last… Read More
The Orthodox Church uses the old Julian calendar to calculate Easter, whereas the Roman Catholics and Protestants use the new Gregorian calendar. Previously, they all used the same Julian calendar, until Pope Gregory XIII changed it (and named the new calendar after himself) in 1582. This means that Easter for Roman Catholics and Protestants can often take place before the Jewish passover, which is chronologically inaccurate, whereas Orthodox Easter is always after the Jewish passover… Read More
Easter always falls sometime during the holiday of Passover. The above is not an answer, just a restatement of the question. A sort of brief explanation: The Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, not a solar one like the Gregorian calendar used in most Western countries. Therefore, dates of Jewish holidays, based on that lunar calendar, vary with regard to the Gregorian calendar. However, in order for Easter Sunday to always fall on a Sunday… Read More
Neither ancient Israelites nor present day Jews celebrate Easter because Easter is part of the Christian tradition. Jews celebrate Passover which takes place around the same time of year, but that's an entirely different holiday. That is the only thing the two holidays have in common. Israeli Christians celebrate Easter when other Christians do.
Pascha is Greek for Easter it comes from the Hebrew word Pesach which is the Festival of Passover Why is the biggest brothel in the world named Pascha?
The name of the Brothel is a made up German name and has no connection the other words. It's not even pronounced the same as the Greek name for easter.
The Jewish festival of PASSOVER occurs roughly contemporaneously with Easter because the Last Supper was a Passover Seder and, therefore, Easter moves around the Calendar to track the Passover Seder.
Although the date for Easter usually does NOT fall on the same date as Passover, it IS entirely possible that it could. Here's why: Easter, celebrated on a different date every year, set by church officials, is held annually on a Sunday sometime in March or April. Passover, first celebrated by the Israelites in Egypt and recorded in the original Hebrew scriptures, is an annual event which begins after sundown on Nisan 14, according to… Read More
Its not. Easter eggs are symobls of fertility left over from pre-christian fertility rituals practiced around the time of the spring solstice. The Church (in an effort to convert pagans) changed "the rebirth of the sun" to the "rebirth of the Son" and put Easter on the same day. The other stuff just kept going.
No, the feast days remain the same date from year to year. Only the lenten season, Holy Week and Easter season change as they are based on the Jewish Passover.
Roman Catholic Answer You cannot name the saints in Holy Week for the simple reason that Easter moves around each year, and the saints stay the same, as they on the calendar. Easter is dependent on the Passover which was celebrated on the first full moon following the vernal equinox.
Passover commemorates the Exodus of this Israelites from Egypt. Jewish tradition holds this was approximately 1312 BCE. No one knows when the first celebration of the holiday of Passover occurred. Some traditions state it was the same year as the Exodus. Other state it came later. Answer: The Torah (Exodus ch.12) states that the first Passover was celebrated on the night preceding the Exodus; and it provides details. See also Numbers ch.9.
Last year. Easter occurs on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal (spring) equinox. Passover is the 15th of Nisan, which occurs on the night of the full moon after the vernal equinox. By definition, therefore, Passover should always occur during the week before Easter: Holy Week. Things get complicated because there are different traditions of how to calculate the "full moon" (which don't necessarily have anything to do with, you… Read More
Passover commemorates the Exodus.
John's is the only gospel to record this episode, which occurred after the Passover meal the same night Jesus was betrayed and arrested. The account is found in John 13:3-15.
What parallels can you see between the Jewish celebration of Passover and the Christian celebration of Easter?
The only parallel would be that the two holidays take place at the same time of year. Otherwise, the holidays are celebrations of completely opposing concepts.
Passover is always celebrated at the same time on the Hebrew calendar, the 15th of Nisan. However, the Hebrew and Western calendars are not the same so Passover falls on different dates on the Western calendar.
The egg is a traditional symbol for Easter dating back centuries. There was a pre christian celebration called Eostre (sp) which celebrated spring. Eggs were used to symbolize birth and new beginings. When the feast of Easter was put into the Church calendar, the calculation of when the week of religious ceremonies would be each year, it is calculated from the full moon and the Spring equinox. Tied in with this is that Passover for… Read More
The Kaddish prayer is always the same - you say Kaddish AFTER Passover.
The Lord's Table, first celebrated in conjunction with Passover, is not the same as "last passover." The last Passover has yet to be celebrated; it is still being celebrated to this day. Jesus said He did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill the law. Celebrating and observing Passover was part of the law. The first Lord's Table (Supper) did not put an end to Passover or its observation.
Passover always begins on the same date on the Hebrew calendar: the 14th of Nissan.
The same way that all other Jews observe Pesach (Passover).
yes, but the "Easter Rising" is the usual name
Any Catholic Italian celebrates Easter! it is the same way the we do. Almost all Cahtolics celebrate Easter the same way.
Irish Jews celebrate Passover the same way as Jews all over the world.
Good Friday fell early this year because of the method of calculating the time of Passover. Good Friday, because it is the Friday before Easter Saturday, and coincides with the Jewish Pasch (Passover) has to be calculated using a Lunar calendar. This year is the earliest Good Friday and Lent for about 150 years, and Good Friday will not occur this early again for about the same ammount of time.
Yes; same thing in two languages.
Easter is on the same day all over the world.
NO beacause i saw my mum with the exact same easter eggs as easter bunny.
Passover is practiced in Judaism. The Eucharist is practiced in Christianity, where they believe that the unleven bread is Christ. In Judaism, it does not apply.
They sell the same shape Easter eggs in France as us. Every country in the whole world has the same shape Easter eggs as us.
There is no way of knowing for certain. Tornadoes have occurred in the same county as Millinocket, but none have hit the town since records began in 1950.
Yes. Passover came during the tenth plague when every oldest child was killed. But the passover is the celebration owhen the Israelites were saved from this final plague.
Easter in kerala is exactly the same as in all the other countries.

As he was crucified on the day before Passover (always on the Jewish Sabbath - a Saturday), heas crucified on the Friday. On the 'third day' he resurrected. In Jewish custom, days were counted always including today, so if he was crucified on Friday, he was resurrected on Sunday morning. In the Christian church this is Easter day, and the Friday before is Good Friday. We are told that jesus was around 33 at the… Read More
Good Friday often falls some time during the holiday of Passover. Passover is a 7 day holiday in Israel and 8 day holiday outside of Israel.
