Passover wine

The Passover (also Pasha or Passover) is one of the most important festivals of Judaism. It literally means "passing by" and is reminiscent of the one in the Old Testament Bible Excerpt described in the book Exodus Egypt, the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. The festival begins with an evening service in the synagogue, followed by the "Seder" (order), the big feast in the family circle. Certain foods with symbolic meaning are taken together according to a well-defined course. After eating, the actual feast follows. At intervals, four cups of wine are drunk, symbolizing God's promises. During the ritual, one cup each of wine is drunk in the steps Kadesh, Magid, Bairach and Hallel. He must (like the food too) comply with the Jewish purity conditions; see below kosher wine,
