Of all the Jewish holidays, Pesach is the one most commonly observed, even by otherwise non-observant Jews. Pesach begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nissan. Passover marks the start of a few agricultural holidays, but the primary observances of Passover is related to the Exodus from Egypt after generations of slavery. "Pesach" comes from the Hebrew root Peh-Samech-Chet , meaning to pass through or to pass over. It refers to the fact that G-d "passed over" the houses of the Jews when he was slaying the firstborn of Egypt.
Here's some ideas to get you stamping your very own Passover cards:
- matzoh stamps, (square stamps with little dots to look like matzoh)
- seder plates (round plates with round sections for each of the food types for passover seder). You can use circle shaped stamps for this.
- Any of the plagues - usually frogs just because they're so darn cute on cards. I can think of a SU! set that has frogs...
- Other Fruit (generic for most holidays)
- A "Passover" word stamp, or combination of letters to spell P-A-S-S-O-V-E-R
Some common sentiments are:
- Happy Passover
- Pasover Blessings
- A wish for you at Passover...
- Wishing you joy at Passover
