Passover is the major Jewish spring festival that commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery, and it lasts eight days.

Wednesday on “Live Well,” Californian reporter Courtenay Edelhart talked about the traditions she and her family observe during this time.

When the Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise.

In commemoration, “for the duration of Passover, we eat unleavened bread,” Edelhart said. “It’s a time of family and celebration."
