One of the biblically ordained Three Pilgrimage Festivals , Passover is traditionally celebrated in the Land of Israel for seven days and for eight days among many Jews in the Diaspora , based on the concept of yom tov sheni shel galuyot. In the Bible, Passover marks the Exodus of the Children of Israel from Egyptian slavery, when God "passed over" the houses of the Israelites during the last of the ten plagues. When the Temple in Jerusalem stood, the paschal lamb was offered and eaten on Passover eve, while the wave offering of barley was offered on the second day of the festival.

Four days before the Exodus, the Hebrews were commanded to set aside a lamb Exodus , and inspect it daily for blemishes. During the day on the 14th of Nisan, they were to slaughter the animal and use its blood to mark their lintels and door posts.
